Proposte per una revisione del finanziamento e dell’offerta dei servizi odontoiatrici in Italia. L’intervento pubblico e i fondi integrativi

Listed author(s):

Le cure odontoiatriche sono una componente di rilievo in un servizio sanitario ispirato al principio della globalità assistenziale. Tuttavia, i volumi di prestazioni odontoiatriche erogate dal servizio sanitario sono relativamente modesti e il 90% della spesa odontoiatrica privata è costituita da pagamenti diretti interamente a carico dei pazienti. Vi sono quindi problemi di disuguaglianza nell’accesso alle cure odontoiatriche. Dal lato dell’offerta le strutture sono parcellizzate con prevalenza di studi con pochi professionisti. L’entrata di nuovi soggetti imprenditoriali dall’estero e il fenomeno del turismo odontoiatrico sembrano introdurre incentivi a ridurre la frammentazione e ad adottare nuovi modelli organizzativi. La ricerca intende approfondire le possibilità di un’estensione dell’accesso alle cure odontoiatriche favorendo una riorganizzazione della domanda, modificando la regolamentazione dell’offerta e incentivando i meccanismi di finanziamento integrativi alle disponibilità del servizio sanitario pubblico. Infine, vengono analizzati diversi modelli di fondi integrativi aperti e la loro efficacia nell’ampliare il grado di copertura complessivo del rischio odontoiatrico.
