HSM 420 Course Project

Fraud and Abuse in Managed Care

Week 2, 5, and 7 

This HSM 420 Course Project provides you with an opportunity to select one important health insurance, managed care, or healthcare reform challenge (or problem to solve) and analyze it in greater depth in a written format.

The paper should critically analyze the issues related to your topic within the context of the current healthcare environment, and also considering future directions in U.S. medical care. Web references, books, and professional journal articles should be considered as references. And don’t overlook the DeVry Online Library as an important source of information for your paper!

Guidelines

  • Your Course Project should be 7–10 pages in length, with 10-point font, and double-spaced. Include a cover page, table of contents, introduction, body of the report, summary/conclusion, and works cited.
  • Even though this is not a scientific writing assignment, and is mostly creative in nature, references are still very important. At least six authoritative outside references are required. These should be listed on the last page, titled Works Cited.
  • Appropriate citations are required.
  • All DeVry University policies are in effect, including the plagiarism policy.
  • Papers are due during Week 7 of this course.
