Abstract

In this paper, I would provide a logically consistent taxonomy of alternative health care financing avenues. I then explore the implications of these alternatives, finally establishing the conclusion that a combination of tax-financing and capped voluntary payments, supplemented by the setting of "moral hazard neutral" fees, would serve the purposes of expenditure containment, universal access to health care, and optimal resource allocation.
