Auf der Suche nach der besten Lösung – vier Modelle der Krankenversicherung
AbstractIn this article, a classification of health insurance systems is proposed. Four ideal type models can be distinguished. The advantages and disadvantages of these models are discussed and empirically investigated. Health insurance systems with a high degree of monopoly and high participation of the state result in lower health care expenditures than systems with various competing health insurance funds. In systems with independent health insurance funds, patients do have more rights than in systems with directly state-driven health care services.
