1. Cuff K, Hurley J, Mestelman S, Muller A, Nuscheler R: Public and private health-care financing with alternate public rationing rules. Health Econ; 2012 Feb;21(2):83-100

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Public and private health-care financing with alternate public rationing rules.
  • We develop a model to analyze parallel public and private health-care financing under two alternative public sector rationing rules: needs-based rationing and random rationing.
  • Individuals vary in income and severity of illness.
  • There is a limited supply of health-care resources used to treat individuals, causing some individuals to go untreated.
  • Insurers (both public and private) must bid to obtain the necessary health-care resources to treat their beneficiaries.
  • Given individuals' willingnesses-to-pay for private insurance are increasing in income, the introduction of private insurance diverts treatment from relatively poor to relatively rich individuals.
  • Further, the impact of introducing parallel private insurance depends on the rationing mechanism in the public sector.
  • We show that the private health insurance market is smaller when the public sector rations according to need than when allocation is random.
