Samuel Antwi Risk Determinants of Claims in Health Insurance:The Ghana Experience

5787 руб.
In August 2003, the Ghanaian Government made history by implementing the first National Health Insurance System (NHIS) in Sub-Saharan Africa. Within three years, over half of the country’s population had willingly enrolled into the National Health Insurance Scheme. The healthcare of people stands paramount and the health insurance scheme concept is one that would guarantee the health of all, thereby abolishing the “cash and carry system”. Health care claims from providers are a major source of expenditure for the health insurance scheme. The financial performance of the NHIS is a function of the premium collected, the cost of health care services of the insured, the level of external subsidy, the size of the pool, and degree of economies of scale that is achieved. This study looks at the various risk characteristics that influence claims in the Ghana National Health Insurance Scheme. The outcome of the study shows that sex, age, marital status, cigarette smoking, alcohol drinking, living condition, distance and length of stay at the hospital are statistically significant in the determination of the Ghana National health insurance premiums since they considerably influence claims.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Economy - Health Economics, grade: 1,7, University of Trier, language: English, abstract: The desirability of micro health insurance is usually beyond doubt but the sustainable provision is a different matter. Even traditional insurance economics have issues which complicate the adequate coverage of risks but the problems in the microinsurance environment are even more dicult to handle. When looking for an approach on how to analyse risks in micro health insurance and how to insure them one will fail to find one. So far, data is very rare. Usually it is only possible to find a small amount of data extracted out of small scale studies/ evaluations. The microinsurance database of the World Bank is an attempt to collect all kinds of relevant data concerning microinsurance but so far, there is only some basic data for six countries.Recently there has been the attempt to start an analytical framework on how to assess insurability of risk in microinsurance. Biener and Eling provide a starting point by adjusting the insurability criteria of Berliner to a microinsurance environment. This paper will continue the work in the area of micro health insurance and suggests a further criterion to be used when assessing the insurability of risk.

Thilo Klein Why Do India's Urban Poor Choose to Go Private?. Health Policy Simulations in Slums of Hyderabad

2877 руб.
Why does a large proportion of India's urban poor choose to pay for private health services when public services are essentially free of charge? Drawing from previous research, this study takes the underprovision of the medication component in public health packages as a starting point. Field evidence shows that patients in public health facilities often have to get external medication, whereas private hospitals offer a menu of pre-specified care packages. Thilo Klein contributes an answer as to why the poor choose to go private by investigating their risk-aversion and demand for insurance in the choice of health facilities. In discrete choice experiments on maternity care in the slums of Hyderabad, the author finds that the lowest income group attaches significantly higher importance to "full medication" maternity care packages. In line with Expected Utility theory, the study further finds empirical evidence that this insurance demand of the poor is partially explained by their risk-aversion. The findings suggest that an effective pro-poor policy should provide insurance cover for medication-related expenses. They have significant implications for the provision of public health care to the poor and are important for policy-makers and health management alike.

Gain a holistic view of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market risk transfer Increasing agricultural production and food security remain key challenges for mankind. In order to meet global food demand, the Food and Agriculture Organisation estimates that production has to increase by 50% by 2050 and requires large investments. Agricultural insurance and financial instruments have been an integral part to advancing productivity and are becoming more important in increasingly globalized and specialized agricultural supply chains in the wake of potentially more frequent and severe natural disasters in today’s key producing markets. Underwriting, pricing and transferring agricultural risks is complex and requires a solid understanding of the production system, exposure, perils and the most suitable products, which vastly differ among developed and developing markets. In the last decade, new insurance schemes in emerging agricultural markets have greatly contributed to the large growth of the industry from a premium volume of US$10.1 billion (2006) to US$30.7 billion (2017). This growth is bound to continue as insurance penetration and exposure increase and new schemes are being developed. Agricultural (re)insurance has become a cornerstone of sovereign disaster risk financing frameworks. Agricultural Risk Transfer introduces the main concepts of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market risk transfer that are discussed through industry case studies. It also discusses best industry practices for all main insurance products for crop, livestock, aquaculture and forestry risks including risk assessment, underwriting, pricing, modelling and loss adjustment. Describes agricultural production risks and risk management approaches Covers risk transfer of production and financial risks through insurance and financial instruments Introduces modelling concepts for the main perils and key data sources that support risk transfer through indemnity- and index-based products Describes risk pricing and underwriting approaches for crop, livestock, aquaculture and forestry exposure in developed and developing agricultural systems Become familiar with risk transfer concepts to reinsurance and capital markets Get to know the current market landscape and main risk transfer products for individual producers, agribusinesses and governments through theory and comprehensive industry case studies Through Agricultural Risk Transfer, you’ll gain a holistic view of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market solutions which will support better underwriting, more structured product development and improved risk transfer.

Violent debate of socialized medicine and health insurance in the United States is punctuated regularly by emotional appeals to the experience of other countries. "Look at England," cries one of the disputants. "Ah! But look at Denmark and France," retorts his opponent. Actually, few Americans have more than the most casual knowledge of the health insurance schemes which have been adopted abroad. Never before has it been possible to obtain in English a complete and objective statement of the work of the Health Insurance Doctor in these three democracies. What is the average income of a doctor under one of these plans? What are the precise rates for services? What office hours? Does a political bureaucracy control medical practice? How many patients may a practitioner carry? What are the rules about free prescription of drugs? How much "paper work" and reporting is required of the doctor? What is the relation between health insurance and relief? And-most important-what do the doctors themselves think of the idea? All of these and hundreds of other vital questions are answered fully, dispassionately, and with amazing clarity in The Health Insurance Doctor. The author is professor of law at the University of California and master of a straightforward style which presents vividly the issues of health insurance confronting a modern democracy.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Sociology - Miscellaneous, Bielefeld University, language: English, abstract: The institution of insurance as it is known today has been largely neglected by sociologists, even though it is the central institution, alongside government, responsible for risk management (Ericson et al 2003: 44). A central focus of risk management is the protection of society from damage caused by natural hazards. This thesis aims to frame insurance and other institutions involved with risk management into a particular viewpoint of social problems.Natural hazards constitute the largest shore of the market for insurance while at the same time pose the largest challenge for the institution. One may question why this is so. Well into the 21st century anthropogenic climate change or global warming is no longer merely a theory, it has become reality. International reinsurers, scientists and politicians agree that anthropogenic CO2 and other gases are increasing the temperature on earth. Consequentially natural hazards are increasing in frequency and impact (Munich Re 2009). This poses problems for societies dealing with impacts from natural hazards. Much research has been done on individual behavior in deciding whether or not to insure against natural hazards (Kunreuther 2004; Kerjan 2008a; Grace 2006).This line of research views individual as myopic in assessing risk, thereby underestimating risk and the relevance of insurance. The emphasis of this re...

Millions of Americans either lose their benefits or have them reduced every year. Most health care providers, insurance industry personnel, and employers agree that the primary reason for this devastating occurrence is increasing cost. What they do not agree on is the definition of the word cost. Some believe one of the solutions is association health plans-the pooling of small employers to allow greater savings through mass purchase. This concept, however, creates another set of problems, and has failed more often than it has worked. Another school of thought supports national health care or state mandated coverage as the answer; big government is the final cure for everything. While national health care, or single payer, may work in socialized countries, it is not likely to work in capitalist America. Others offer no real solutions, except to debate the issue and hope the problem will fix itself.The Bitter Pill was written to not only define the real problem of reduced or eliminated benefits due to increasing medical costs, but to also offer real solutions.

In crop insurance it is necessary to understand how underlying risk variability arises from changes in prices, yields, or both. Typically, agricultural risks are not isolated from one another. The underlying risks are dependent in different dimensions, such as time dependence, portfolio dependence, and spatial dependence. Thus, it is important to be able to adequately model dependence with multivariate outcomes. Ignoring dependencies can lead to possibly biased and inefficient estimates of the risk. This study provides a comprehensive and in-depth economic and statistical analysis of various risk in agriculture, especially the dependence structure of agricultural risk. Using both estimation and simulation methods, we analyze the interaction of risk in the presence of time-varying dimension, portfolio dimension and spatial correlation dimension. By modeling and measuring dependence, it is possible to improve risk management instruments that take advantage of dependencies between different products. This will help improve the risk management and will help government, insurance/reinsurance companies, and policy makers to evaluate their contract design and policy making.

Colin Gordon Dead on Arrival. The Politics of Health Care in Twentieth-Century America

4514 руб.
Why, alone among industrial democracies, does the United States not have national health insurance? While many books have addressed this question, Dead on Arrival is the first to do so based on original archival research for the full sweep of the twentieth century. Drawing on a wide range of political, reform, business, and labor records, Colin Gordon traces a complex and interwoven story of political failure and private response. He examines, in turn, the emergence of private, work-based benefits; the uniquely American pursuit of "social insurance"; the influence of race and gender on the health care debate; and the ongoing confrontation between reformers and powerful economic and health interests. Dead on Arrival stands alone in accounting for the failure of national or universal health policy from the early twentieth century to the present. As importantly, it also suggests how various interests (doctors, hospitals, patients, workers, employers, labor unions, medical reformers, and political parties) confronted the question of health care--as a private responsibility, as a job-based benefit, as a political obligation, and as a fundamental right. Using health care as a window onto the logic of American politics and American social provision, Gordon both deepens and informs the contemporary debate. Fluidly written and deftly argued, Dead on Arrival is thus not only a compelling history of the health care quandary but a fascinating exploration of the country's poli...

Countries all over the world have always been concerned with developing their health care financing systems, so as to ensure access to health care for their citizens. They have sought to develop systems that would provide adequate financial resources and to be affordable to all those sharing in the costs, through mechanisms that will not entail financial barriers to seeking care, particularly at the time of illness. In theory, social health insurance has the most potential to achieve health policy objectives, in practice it has been difficult to achieve in low-income countries because, implementing Social Health Insurance in economically, socially, and culturally diverse environments, produces unexpected challenges. Linkages between overcoming the challenges of implementing social health insurance in low-income countries and the success of the scheme vary from institutional, legal and technical point of view. Designing and implementing social health insurance in Sierra Leone is constraint by lack of human capacity and sufficient financial resources among others.

Low-income people face a wide spectrum of risks and they exercise some ex ante and ex post strategies against these risks. Microinsurance has become an increasingly widespread tool for risk mitigation at this time. From the field survey, customers need more than the credit-life insurance including health, property and retirement payments. Nevertheless, AdCSI for the last four years have been giving credit-life insurance only. The finding shows that the role of Microinsurance toward the MFIs seems to be low in AdCSI because of the limited risk coverage. There are possible ways to expand the product type and delivery channels in order to ensure large coverage and increase its value. By using Primary and Secondary data, this book tries to see the positive role of Microinsurance toward the MFIs.

Gain a holistic view of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market risk transfer Increasing agricultural production and food security remain key challenges for mankind. In order to meet global food demand, the Food and Agriculture Organisation estimates that production has to increase by 50% by 2050 and requires large investments. Agricultural insurance and financial instruments have been an integral part to advancing productivity and are becoming more important in increasingly globalized and specialized agricultural supply chains in the wake of potentially more frequent and severe natural disasters in today’s key producing markets. Underwriting, pricing and transferring agricultural risks is complex and requires a solid understanding of the production system, exposure, perils and the most suitable products, which vastly differ among developed and developing markets. In the last decade, new insurance schemes in emerging agricultural markets have greatly contributed to the large growth of the industry from a premium volume of US$10.1 billion (2006) to US$30.7 billion (2017). This growth is bound to continue as insurance penetration and exposure increase and new schemes are being developed. Agricultural (re)insurance has become a cornerstone of sovereign disaster risk financing frameworks. Agricultural Risk Transfer introduces the main concepts of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market risk transfer that are discussed through industry case studies. It also discusses best industry practices for all main insurance products for crop, livestock, aquaculture and forestry risks including risk assessment, underwriting, pricing, modelling and loss adjustment. Describes agricultural production risks and risk management approaches Covers risk transfer of production and financial risks through insurance and financial instruments Introduces modelling concepts for the main perils and key data sources that support risk transfer through indemnity- and index-based products Describes risk pricing and underwriting approaches for crop, livestock, aquaculture and forestry exposure in developed and developing agricultural systems Become familiar with risk transfer concepts to reinsurance and capital markets Get to know the current market landscape and main risk transfer products for individual producers, agribusinesses and governments through theory and comprehensive industry case studies Through Agricultural Risk Transfer, you’ll gain a holistic view of agricultural (re)insurance and capital market solutions which will support better underwriting, more structured product development and improved risk transfer.
