  1. Reforming the Israeli health care market.

    Article - En anglais

    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.
