  1. Towards a capitation formula for competing health insurers, an empirical analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    In many countries the concept of capitating health care insurers is receiving increasing attention.

    The main reason is, that capitation may induce health care insurers in a competitive environment to concentrate more on cost containment.

    However, if the adjusters on which capitation payments are based, are too global, there may be ample room for risk selection by the insurers whilst also an unfair distribution of funds over the insurers may result, thereby undermining the objectives of capitation.
