Description:
This strategic study has two objectives: • To identify the strategic issues facing private health financing providers in the Republic of Ireland and to highlight the learning points for the future • To identify the most important trends driving change in international healthcare provision and to compare the structure of international markets with that in Ireland. Scope This report surveys the Irish health financing market in addition to five other markets consisting of Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, the USA and Australia. Each of these has been selected for the degree of product and service innovation evident in these markets or differing approaches to private health insurance provision. Inevitably there are differences in the definitions of what constitutes private health insurance; the extent of specific data available and its comparability across individual markets. Therefore our findings and conclusions can only serve as indicators of the critical differences that exist in market structure. The main emphasis of this research is on the private medical insurance (PMI) market as this is by far the largest. Critical illness, accident and health, and permanent health insurance are covered peripherally.
