Health Care Financing

Definition

Health Economics

  • Health care is typically financed from a number of sources in any jurisdiction, though the proportions vary greatly from one to another. The usual sources are direct and indirect taxes (including taxes on employers and employees and special taxes designated or earmarked for health care), social insurance contributions, private insurance premiums and direct payments for care (paid by patients or third party payers).
