Assurance maladie et redistribution : le cas de l'arrêt maladie
This article studies the role of an exclusive social insurance as a redistributive mechanism in presence of an optimal linear income tax. Agents differ in labor productivity and in loss probability. In case of illness, they suffer a health care expenditure and an income loss. The purpose is to determine the conditions under which a uniform health care coverage and an individual income based on personal income allow income redistribution. Is a complete social insurance optimal?
