L'Etat ou le marché dans l'assurance-maladie


  • Maurice Marchand
  • Pierre Pestieau


[fre] Cet article discute les avantages et les inconvénients d'un système d'assurance-maladie qui serait exclusivement public ou privé. Ensuite, il passe en revue les systèmes d'un certain nombre de pays de l'O.C.D.E., systèmes où coexistent l'Etat et le marché. Il conclut en souhaitant que le financement de l'assurance-maladie demeure essentiellement public et que soit préservée l'universalité d'accès. [eng] This paper discusses the comparative advantages of the state and the market in providing health insurance. It then reviews actual systems of health insurance such as experienced in a number of O.E.C.D. countries. In these systems, one finds a combination of state control and market allocation. It then concludes on the necessity of insuring by all means universal accessibility.
