Causes of health expenditure growth : the predominance of changes in medical practices over population ageing
AbstractCet article compare, sur données individuelles françaises, les effets sur la croissance des dépenses de santé, observée entre 1992 et 2000, des changements démographiques, des changements de pratiques médicales et des changements de morbidité. Des micro-simulations montrent que la croissance des dépenses attribuable au vieillissement est relativement faible. L’impact des changements de pratique est 3.8 fois plus élevé. En outre, les changements de morbidité induisent des économies qui compensent largement l’effet du vieillissement.
