Abstract

This paper outlines a taxonomy of alternative health care funding avenues and the implications of these alternatives. The current approach to health care funding in Sweden is highlighted and a similar proposal outlined to meet the Hong Kong situation. The benefits of the proposed combination of tax-funded and capped voluntary payments, supplemented by 'moral hazard neutral' fees are presented, in terms of expenditure containment, universal access to health care, and optimal resource allocation. 本報告概述了不同的醫護融資方法概念上的分別及利幣,並重點介紹瑞典目前採用的醫護融資和收費模式。作者認為香港可採用類似的融資方案。他指出以一般稅收融資配合「道德風險」中性的和設有上限的收費有三大優點,包括成本控制、全民共享及合理分配資源等。
