Slide notes:Many countries provide government-paid basic health care services for their residents. These services are usually funded by general taxes, payroll taxes, or a combination of both. How this publically funded health care is structured and delivered varies from country to country. Privately purchased health insurance may also play a role in these public health care systems. As mentioned in lecture b, the U.S. health care system is a mixed model of private health care organizations and government-operated systems. 6
