How come it’s difficult for people with Medicare/Medical Assistance to get into a doctors or dentist office if they have insurance?
- Most places don’t take insurance
- How easy or hard is it for people with insurance to get assistance
How people with lower income struggle to get a doctor/dentist
- Do they take insurance
- The kind of care they get
Create a case study on two people (going undercover)
Or create a story on
- Language barriers
- Not trusting doctors or government
I would start to research the history of Medicare and Medicaid. Then research why medical care takes public insurance, but dentists do not have to. There has to be a reason why Dentists don’t have to take Medicare or Medicaid.
Then I would start to think of myths people say when we talk about individuals who have Medicare/Medicaid.
Myth-they don’t care about their health
You could do your presentation this way versus the scenarios/case study.
