Abstract

When government interventions are introduced, it appears that in addition to cost-containment, potential improvements in paying for quality of care, and reductions in cream-skimming can be accomplished in a multi-payer system. In contrast, inefficiencies are still inherent in a single-payer system. If Governmental reforms in the multi-payer system can be successfully accomplished, as they have been in Israel and the Netherlands, the directions for the U.S. health system may be somewhat clearer.
