Israel's experience in attempting to implement a health system reform based in large measure on managed competition should provide important data to other countries considering reliance on competitive mechanisms for third-party purchase of health care.
In this paper, current proposals for reform of the Israeli market for third-party purchase of health care are examined in light of ideal market structures, particularly the theory of managed competition.
The relationship between that theory, the notion of a « purchaser-provider split » and the Israeli case are explored.
The current Israeli health care market, which features enrollment of 96% of the population in competing sick funds, is presented.
The changes necessary to base third-party purchase of health-care on managed competition are discussed.
