Post an example that illustrates the difference between a fee-for-service payment and a case-based service payment.

Explain the benefits and limitations of each approach. Assess the viability of utilizing, within your own organization (or one with which you are familiar), the two alternative reimbursement strategies described in “Which Health care Payment System is Best?”

Analyze how the nurse-to-patient ratio is affected by the payment approach selected and how these impact quality of service.
