- What is meant by the term “uncompensated care?”
- Who bears the burden of uncompensated care? Please explain.
- To what extent has the ACA been successful in reducing this burden? To what extent has it not? (Note: Be sure to support your responses with evidence from your background readings; failure to do so will result in point deductions.)
