309.670.01 COMPARATIVE HEALTH INSURANCE
Reviews the organization and financing of health systems in middle and high-income countries – focusing on population coverage, in terms of both how different groups are covered and the benefits package provided. Begins with a conceptual framework of financing flows in the health sector, and proceeds to identify a series of topics and case studies as the subject of specific lectures. Explores in depth the principal models for population coverage – including national health insurance, national health service, social insurance, private insurance, and mixed hybrid models. Provides case studies of health insurance coverage in specific countries, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Chile – with lessons drawn for transitional countries interested in expanding health insurance coverage.
