The paper analyzesthe effects of shifting this kind of redistribution to the taxsystem and argues that this reform could create two types ofefficiency gains. On the expenditure side, it would facilitatethe adoption of more incentive-compatible insurance contracts,for example through the introduction of copayment schemes. Onthe revenue side, income redistribution through the general taxsystem is likely to imply a shadow price of public funds thatis lower than if redistribution is carried out through wage-basedinsurance contributions.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Haufler, Andreas</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Haufler, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2000</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: International Tax and Public Finance ; 7(2000), 4-5. - S. 445-461</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Health care reform : Separating insurance from income redistribution</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
