Primes de risque et soins de santé
In this work, the notion of risk premium is applied to a situation for which the individual is confronted with a risk of illness. This health risk can breed a risk of wealth via the recourse to health care. Following the nature of health care undertaken, different premiums are defined which verify the usual properties of the Arrow-Pratt risk premiums. Finally, the comparison of these premiums informs us of the individual preferences in terms of health care. Dans ce travail, nous appliquons la notion de prime de risque à une situation pour laquelle l’individu est confronté à un risque de maladie qui peut engendrer un risque de richesse via le recours aux soins de santé. Suivant la nature des soins entrepris, différentes primes sont définies qui vérifient pour la plupart les propriétés usuelles des primes à la Arrow-Pratt. Enfin, la comparaison de ces primes nous renseigne sur les préférences individuelles en matière de soins de santé.
