    Abstract

    Das faktisch umlagefinanzierte Gesundheitswesen der Gesetzlichen Krankenversicherung steht in Anbetracht der demografischen Entwicklung nach wie vor massiven Finanzierungsproblemen gegenüber. Das Wettbewerbsstärkungsgesetz sollte daher ursprünglich nicht nur Ausgangspunkt für weitere Reformen etwa in Richtung eines Prämiensystems sein, sondern sich vor allem effizienzsteigernd und kostendämpfend auswirken. Tatsächlich jedoch sind die öffentlichen Ausgaben im Gesundheitswesen im Krisenjahr 2009 um mehr als sechs Prozent angestiegen. Dieser Beitrag wirft einen detaillierten Blick auf die zurückliegende Kostensteigerung und misst den ursächlichen Einflussfaktoren ihre jeweilige Bedeutung zu. Die Analyse konzentriert sich dabei insbesondere auf demografische, technologische und politische Faktoren. --
