This paper is to be done using your own words, if you copy portions from websites or books, you MUST credit the source. Information source: Use the internet and any other resources you find (Ministry of Health websites, CMG materials, etc)
1. Describe your province’s funding formula for acute care facilities/health authorities. This means “how is your province funded”? I am not looking for a specific mathematical formula.
2. Does the funding formula rely on CMG or CACS grouping methodologies (case costing)? Explain in your own words how the grouping methodology/case costing impacts the healthcare funding mechanisms of your province. 3. Compare the use of case costing/patient focussed funding versus block funding (what are they, similarities/differences, reasoning, etc). 4. From question 3, which do you prefer, and why? Remember to include links or reference where your information came from.
