Financing High Medical Risks: Discussions, Developments.. the Netherlands since 1945 in European Perspective (Paperback)
Across the member states of the European Union, common problems and challenges have arisen related to the accessibility, quality, and financial sustainability of long-term healthcare services, which represent a new social and medical risk. This book compares national policies in Norway, Germany, and the Netherlands and these countries’ approaches to issues such as old-age insurance, home-help programs, and mental healthcare. The contributions look at different paths of policy development, identify problems faced by public and private parties, and ultimately discuss possible solutions.
