De l’aléa moral du patient aux inégalités d’accès aux soins

Philippe Batifoulier ()

No 2014-7, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX

Abstract: One of the most influential “lessons” of the moral hazard theory in health economics is that cost sharing can reduce health spending without damage on health status. This “lesson” has been enormously influential on policy makers. This paper shows that this theoretical and empirical background is deficient and leads to perverse effects: inducement of inequalities and increase in health spending.
