Sharing The Burden: Containing the Cost: Fundamental Conflicts in Health Care Finance
In all developed societies, the financing of health care is a collective process. Pools of funds, described bu White (1995) as "Shared saving", are assembled through more or less compulsory levies on the general population, within or outside the formal tax system. Thses funds are then been transferred to the providers of care through institutional structures and processes which vary considerably from one economy to another. But in no developed society does direct payment by the user of sewrvices account for more a small fraction of the total cost of health care.
