Abstract: Neither extending the German mandatory health insurance scheme to the entire population nor aligning the remuneration for privately and statutorily insured patients will slow down the disproportionate growth of health care expenditure in the mandatory health insurance. However, competition between different types of medical care may help to leverage efficiency reserves provided that cost differences lead to different payments which in turn incentivise the cost awareness of all players in the health care system.
