Health Care Developments in EU Member States Regressing Trends and Institutional Similarity?

Publication year: 2011

Ingalill Montanari and Kenneth Nelson

The purpose of this paper is to perform a diachronical cross-national analysis of health care services and raise questions of decline and convergence of European health care systems. Contrary to previous claims, it is found that European health care systems are not particularly hit by retrenchment and convergence is absent in key health care dimensions, namely coverage, financing and provision.
