In this paper we study the optimal cross sectional distribution of health care expenditures in a Mirrleesian style environment. We find that, under standard assumptions from the health literature, more productive types should have better health care and that all types should have some health care. In some cases, we find formal rationalization for all individuals to have equal health care after retirement.
