Oxford University Press

This chapter presents three alternative reimbursement systems for hospitals, and discusses the pros and cons of each system. In their pure form, none of these systems emerges as the ideal solution, which explains why we observe blended systems in practice. Exercises and suggested readings are included at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   alternative reimbursement systems, payment systems, prospective fixed budgets, prospective variable, cost reimbursement
