This study examines structural differences in the subjective quality of health care in Germany using a newspaper survey. We find that there are significant differences between urban and rural areas as well as between public and private insurance. In rural areas, the provision of general practitioners, specialists and hospitals are considered as worse than in cities. In particular, public insured individuals asses the provision of specialized doctors and hospitals as lower than private insured and criticize long waiting times for appointments and lacking coverage of health care costs by the statutory health insurance.

The combined evidence in Figures 14 and 15 provides equally powerful evidence that these net benefits are strongly redistributive. Both absolutely and as a percentage of their money incomes, the net benefits provided through public and private health insurance are tilted heavily toward Americans with lower incomes. Total health care spending is fairly equal up and down the

. If enacted, this legislation will prohibit genetic discrimination by public and private health insurance providers, preventing them from deny- ing coverage or imposing higher premiums on the basis of genetic status, or from asking applicants to undertake genetic testing. It also seeks to prohibit genetic discrimination in employment. Whilst this has been unanimously passed by the US Senate, it has still not received the necessary endorsement from the US House of Representatives to bring it into law. It remains, therefore, to be seen whether these central concerns

for farmers with potential health risk The public health-care benefits for farmers are insufficient. Agriculture and Fishery Medicare (AFM) was implemented in 1988, with the government mandating subscription of AFM in order to revitalize medical insurance in Korea. In its initial phase, 70% of the farmers became members of AFM. Soon, the policy’s relatively high premium brought this figure down to 50%. Private health insurance is much less prevalent in rural areas as well. 19 This shortage of public and private health insurance results in considerable medical

questions about their coverage under public and private health insurance plans over the course of a full year. The percentages shown indicate the share of respondents who had coverage under one or more plans during at least part of a calendar year. The surge in insurance coverage among the elderly between 1963 and 1968, and its much slower growth in the population under 65, was uncovered in the NHIS interviews. The continued wide gap between coverage rates among the elderly and non-elderly since 1996 is plainly visible in the MEPS household interviews. Before Medicare was
