Description:
The appropriate method of financing the health care system is currently the subject of debate in many developed countries, in the face of an explosion in costs and apparently insatiable demand. The primary objective of the paper is to critically examine one widely-discussed option, which is to rely on private funding as the dominant means of financing. Some important issues with respect to financing in the context of systems which are instead dominated by the State are also discussed. While the arguments are dealt with at a general level, they have immediate relevance to the direction in which the Irish health services should develop.
