Incidencia del Auge en la salud privada
[AUGE`s impact in private health]

  • Fernández Montt, René

This paper present an e valuation of the health system’s re form initiated during the period of the former President Ricardo Lagos (Law 19.996).In this paper we assess the probability that a given patient selects the system AUGE GES, (that mainly consists on a guarantee offered by the State of Chile on the access, the quality, the opportunity and the financial protection of an umber of pathologies) in order to receive treatment for any of the pathologies typified in the system. The information was obtained from two important private health ser vices entities. Methods: Two Multichanged Statistical Models we re used to determine the effect of the different variables o n the final decision to accept or reject the attention under AUGE GES. Results: The pathologies of high cost, such as oncologic treatments, exhibit a greater probability of being provided through the AUGE GES health network. On the contrary, primary care services, including respirator y disorders have a lower likelihood of being treated via the AUGE GES, since those ser vices have a relatively lower economic impact. Like wise, it was observed that patients from a lower socio-economic status exhibit a higher demand of AUGE health ser vices. This fact was identified by using the Human Development Index (HDI). Conclusions: As far as public health is concerned, this methodology may be useful to identify the characteristics of those patients voluntarily accepting or re fusing the health care coverage from the AUGE GES.
