Economic Analysis of Different Health Policy Models in China Funded by CMB
This research conducted a comparative analysis of different health policy approaches in China. The study design followed an economic framework with demand and supply serving as two cornerstones coupled with a social insurance intervention. The core objective is to test the performance of two competing models：welfare-based budgetary model vs. value-based competitive model, largely representing the two leading schools of thoughts on the current health reform policy debate in China. The models were assessed on a wide range of economic performance, health gains, quality of life and satisfactions from both perspectives of providers and patients.
