Delivering Health Care in America Name: Institution: Delivering Health Care in America What is socialized health insurance (SHI)? Socialized health insurance entails a system of meeting health costs where employers and employees are required by the government to contribute a set amount of money towards the health insurance fund (Niles, 2016). The government also contributes some money towards the health insurance fund.
