Socialized Healthcare Systems of Scandinavian Countries Discussion
I need an explanation for this Health & Medical question to help me study.
For a number of years and especially lately, politicians have been promoting the idea that the United States healthcare system should resemble the socialized healthcare systems of Scandinavian countries, often pointing to Sweden and Norway, as examples. If you agree with this notion, provide a strong argument for why the healthcare system of Sweden or Norway is better than the United States. If you disagree with this notion, provide a strong argument as to why the United States healthcare system is better than the healthcare system of Sweden or Norway.
Should United States healthcare system resemble the socialized healthcare systems of Scandinavian countries, why or why not?
MN 553 Ibuprofen & Diazepam Prices in Pharmacies California Chart
Choose one prescription drug that has a generic available (the pharmacy MUST sell both the generic and the brand of the chosen drug) and one over-the-counter (OTC) drug you would be likely to recommend to patients. Next locate one pharmacy from each of the four different types listed below:
Large chain pharmacies such as Walgreens, CVS, Eckard’s, etc.
Grocery store associate pharmacies such as Publix, Kroger, etc.
Privately owned local pharmacy
Pharmacy associated with a “big box” store such as Target, Walmart, etc.
Do not use any drugs on the pharmacy’s four dollar or other special price list. If the pharmacy has a “club card,” coupons or other special way of getting lower cost, do not use this cost. The cost you are examining is the “cash price” for uninsured patients.
Compare the cash cost of the brand and the generic of the prescription drug, and the OTC drug brand and generic making sure that the dose (milligrams, micrograms, etc.), form (caps, tablets, etc.), and number of pills are the same. (Example: Synthroid .05 milligrams and levothyroxine .05 milligrams, prescription for 30 pills. Tylenol 500 mg. and Acetaminophen 500mg, 100 gel caps.)
Include the city and state of the pharmacies. (State is California) (City is Bakersfield)
