  • Would you join a health plan simply because it had the lowest cost, without any information on quality? Why or why not?

  •  Referring to what you learned in your required and optional readings:

  • Should we, as a society, rely on individual choice of high-quality providers?

  • Should our decisions be based on publicly available report cards to improve health care quality?

  • Should we rely on institutions (for example, government agencies) to mandate and enforce minimum quality standards? Why or why not?
