Models of Health:


 Defined by the absence of illness, signs, and symptoms of disease.

 May not seek preventative care or services.

 People who use this model may not seek preventive health services or they may

wait until they are very ill to seek care.

 You go to the hospital if you need immediate help (such as a broken something

not a cold you caught).

Role Performance945, with performance based on societal expectations.

 Illness would be the failure to perform roles at

the ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////level of others in


o EX: If you are sick, you get medicine to help you get back up and running


 The ability to adjust positively to social, mental, and physiological change

 Illness occurs when the person is unable to adapt

o Go through a traumatic injury and then you get help with adapting to a

new injury (takes a slow process).


 Emphasizes the interactions between physical, social, psychological, and spiritual

aspects of life

 Goal attainment and meaning

 May seek out alternative therapies, council of priest, rabbi, or minister

 Strive for equilibrium

o A person dying of cancer may still be healthy if that person is finding

meaning in life at this stage of development.

Reasons why the Eudemonistic model is a better, more cost effective model to use today?

 This was adopted by the healthcare system because it pays the hospitals, doctors, etc

more money because people only come when they are in dire need of medical care thus

needing more tests, medicine, procedures done to them and since every little thing costs

money the hospital or facility gets paid either from the patient or insurance company. It is

more expensive for the patient. Also it was adopted because people think they are

healthy or they do not have enough money to go to the doctor for every little thing that

happens to them.

Why the Affordable Care Act can move America towards a Eudemonistic model?

 This model is better because you are focusing on your health as a whole and

emphasizes the interactions within social, spiritual, physical, and psychological aspects

of life. You seek out alternative therapies such as ministers, rabbis, etc. It is a more

holistic approach to medicine and therefore costs less since you are using different types

of holistic treatments instead of the big medications from the big pharmaceutical

companies. They don't let their illness slow them down.

Understand the difference between these three types of insurance and how people gain access to

these health insurances in the Private Sector:


 Deliver comprehensive health maintenance and treatment services to a group of

enrolled individuals who prepay a fixed fee.

 The employer pays a monthly or annual rate directly to the HMO.

 The individual may also have out-of-pocket expenses such as copayments.

 Go to primary doctor and get a referral for a specialty doctor

 Can’t go to doctors outside HMO physicians


 Contracted providers provide services for discounted price

 Additional costs if a provider outside the PPO is used.

 To control costs, the provider must receive preauthorization from the PPO for a

member to be hospitalized or for some procedures or tests, and second opinions

are usually required before major procedures or surgical operations are performed.


 POS plans allow members, for an additional fee and higher copayment, to use

providers outside the individual HMO network.


 Independent physicians in solo or group practices who provide health care

services to members of an HMO

 Group practice model: HMO contracts with all physicians and specialists needed

by the HMO enrollees, but physicians remain independent.

groups for both primary and specialty services.
