Although the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) interactive map shows a steady decline nationwide in teen pregnancies. (2021) these numbers have the potential to be decreased further. Primary, secondary, and tertiary measures that may decrease the number of teen pregnancies may include the following:
Primary prevention refers to actions taken to prevent an event from occuring. (Friis

post #1: Heath Issues to Resolve
The healthcare system in the United States is very complex. Healthcare policies issued by federal, state, and local organizations try to close the gap between the have and have-not in accessing healthcare. As a result, professional providers such as physicians, dentists, pharmacists have faced many challenges in navigating healthcare policies in providing healthcare to the general population while managing several financial metrics for their business survival. I believe the three challenges faced by professional providers that are difficult to resolve are whether the providers should accept Medicaid patients, what services should the provider deliver besides what typically provided by their specialty, and whether the provider should join large healthcare group such as health maintenance organization (HMO).
Providers have faced challenges in accepting Medicaid patients due to low fee that makes it hard to provide service while maintaining overhead costs. Several states set Medicaid provider fees lower than private insurance payments. Majority of providers opt out of accepting Medicaid patients due to the low fee. Further studies indicated that regions with higher Medicaid payment correlate with higher Medicaid provider participation ( Saulsberry et.al. 2019).
Due to limited number of available healthcare specialists, the demand of service for specialty care has not been adequately met for the general population. Providers are often faced with whether they should offer additional service besides what typically offered by their specialty. This causes additional financial burden for the providers since they need further training in specialty care. Since the roll out of Medicare and Medicaid program in 1965, the supply of physicians have not kept up with the demand for physician services ( McLaughlin,C
