A Look At Holland’s Reforms Featured In New Health Affairs



May 15th, 2008

The Netherlands, which combines mandatory universal health insurance with competition among private health insurers, has been frequently cited as a possible model for reform in the United States. You can read Wynand van de Ven and Frederik Schut’s examination of the Dutch experience (free access until May 27) in the May/June issue of Health Affairs, a thematic volume on health reform that was published May 13.

The new Health Affairs issue was highlighted at a May 13 event featuring Celinda Lake, Bill McInturff, Jason Furman, Peter Orszag, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and representatives of the three presidential campaigns. To view a Webcast of the event, click here.

    I have lived in Holland, Taiwan and Finland so I do have something to compare.
    Our system will eventually destroy this country because the added wasted cost will make the USA non-competitive in the world markets. Our mess has to be fixed if we are to survive.
    Having just gone thru a major medical event I got really angry and made a web site. Here it is:

    I have made a direct cost comparison between USA and Finland in a simple to read form applicable to a common worker.
    I also went to UnitedHealth Group form 10-K filing with the SEC and factored that info for the whole country. Thats shown under the tab NCL (Non Contributing Layer) The waste is unbelievable.
