Sample text

Reforms to the health insurance system, based on the Dekker Report (1987) and Simons Plan, were proposed. These would cover a wide range of care services and increase the role of the market. Measures were to be phased in from 1991-5; following a change of government, however, many of the Dekker/Simons proposals were not implemented. The report of the W elschen Committee, set up in 1993 to advise on care for older people, proposed a new structure for dividing the costs of health care and housing (Commissie Modemisering Oudere~org, 1994).

In the Netherlands there was an important debate about care insurance following the Dekker report (1987), but many of the proposals were not implemented. Another approach to resolving the difficulties of funding and providing services for older people in all six countries is to promote welfare pluralism. Privatisation of previously state-provided services by developing the use of private markets, the voluntary non-profit and informal sectors became a preferred policy option in the provision of health and social care services in the 1980s.

The United Kingdom has a national health service (NHS), funded mainly from general taxation, providing comprehensive universal coverage free at the point of use, except where charges are made, for example for dental costs. Pensioners are exempt from prescription charges. There is also increasing use of private health insurance, often funded by employers for professional and managerial staff, to purchase care in the private market. Tax concessions for purchase of private health insurance by the over-60s were introduced in 1990.
