This course focuses on the economic and legal aspects of healthcare insurance markets mainly in developed countries. At the end of the course the student understands the fundamental economic and legal arguments for regulatory intervention in healthcare financing and insurance markets. The course also provides students with case-studies regarding the practice of health insurance in various European countries and the US. Teaching combines conceptual and theoretical considerations with applied country-based cases. At the end of the course, the student is expected to reach a detailed knowledge about: 1) the main economic and legal rationales lying behind healthcare financing and insurance markets; 2) the role, limitations and potential solutions of regulatory intervention in healthcare (e.g. including aged and long term care insurance) markets; 3) European countries and US health insurance design and regulatory frameworks.
