Health insurance values and implementation in the Netherlands and the Federal Republic of Germany : an alternative path to universal coverage.
The health care systems in the Netherlands and the Federal Republic of Germany are based on a set of values that involve mutual obligations between private parties.
These obligations are realized through systems incorporating private practice physicians, community and church- and municipality-affiliated hospitals, and nonprofit and for-profit insurers.
The underlying values and implementation approaches in these systems provide an alternative to the adoption of a Canadian-style health insurance system.
A discussion that focuses on « obligations » rather than « rights » may be a more useful approach for the design of reforms of the American health system, in the 1990s.
