  1. Government participation in physician negotiations in german economic policy as applied to universal health care coverage in the United States.

    Article - En anglais

    Systems of universal health care coverage in western industrial societies have usually established some form of government participation in negotiations over physician payment as a means of controlling costs.

    In the Federal Republic of Germany, a mixed private and public body.

    Concerted Action in Health Care sets a « target » for physician and'sickness fund' negotiators.

    This indirect form of government participation is effective in'linking'fees with utilization during negotiations, avoiding inflationary trends inherent in fee-for-service systems.

    This target-setting factor is a necessary complement to negotiation of a « pool » of money, wage level and technological adjustment factors, as contained in a model of German economic health care policy.
