Describe the differences between federal, state, and local health care regulatory responsibilities in the chosen health policy.
The federal government has a key responsibility of funding the implementation of the Washington Indian health improvement Act. This will be done depending on the amount which the state shifts from its general funds to the federation.
The state government has a responsibility to carry out the activities needed for the implementation of the act. A key duty is a creation of an advisory council that will oversee the implementation of the act. The state has the responsibility to ensure the advisory council created meets the threshold requirements as proposed in the policy. The state will develop a reinvestment account for Indian health improvement. All the money appropriated funds set for the implementation of the Act will be deposited here (Willging, et.al., 2021). The state has the responsibility to ensure revenue control and effective expenditure of the funds in the reinvestment account.
The local governments have the responsibility to provide health statistics and records from the target population. Through local government agencies the following services should be provided; control of communicable diseases, home health care, school health services, sanitation services, public health nursing, and epidemiology (Willging, et.al., 2021). The combination of the services from the federal, state, and local government will ensure the implementation of the Washington Indian Health Improvement Act.
