Final Paper: The final paper should be between 6-8 pages in length (not including title and reference pages). Your paper should follow the general format of APA Guidelines.  Review the APA information that I have provided in the classroom as you work on your final paper and before you submit your final.  The use of headings per APA 7th edition formatting guidelines is required. You can submit more than eight (8) pages; however, I will not read past eight (8) pages of content so be sure that all required information is included with the page length parameters.

The final paper will require you to evaluate the United States Healthcare System based on the information you have learned in this course and evaluate it against the healthcare system of another high-income country (e.g., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom). Make a determination as to whether or not the United States should/should not model its healthcare system after the healthcare system of the country you selected. Defend your decision. Focus on using scholarly sources in your paper.

Additionally, review your Turnitin Score before final submission. Your score SHOULD NOT be over 25%.  If your score is over 50%, a grade of “0” will be applied and your paper will be submitted to the university’s academic honesty department.
