Medical readmissions

The Session Long Project (SLP) for this course entails development of a series of position papers (one page) on the topics introduced in each module. After reading and reviewing the required materials for the modules, draft a position paper informed by what you learned from this background information.

For this second SLP assignment, your position paper should address the Affordable Care Act as a mechanism for reducing the burden of uncompensated care.

Length: One page, single-spaced
