Health care in the Netherlands Ina new system of health insurance came into force in the Netherlands. This new system avoids the two pitfalls of adverse selection and moral hazard associated with traditional forms of health insurance by using a combination of regulation and an insurance equalization pool.
Moral hazard is avoided by mandating that insurance companies provide at least one policy which meets a government set minimum standard level of coverage, and all adult residents are obliged by law to purchase this coverage from an insurance company of their choice.
All insurance companies receive funds from the equalization pool to help cover the cost of this government-mandated coverage. These policies do not receive funding from the equalization pool, but cover additional treatments, such as dental procedures and physiotherapy, which are not paid for by the mandatory policy.
However, high-risk individuals get more from the pool, and low-income persons and children under 18 have their insurance paid for entirely.
Because of this, insurance companies no longer find insuring high risk individuals an unappealing proposition, avoiding the potential problem of adverse selection. Insurance companies are not allowed to have co-payments, caps, or deductibles, or to deny coverage to any person applying for a policy, or to charge anything other than their nationally set and published standard premiums.
Therefore, every person buying insurance will pay the same price as everyone else buying the same policy, and every person will get at least the minimum level of coverage.

The Swiss healthcare system is a combination of public, subsidised private and totally private systems. Insurance premiums vary from insurance company to company, the excess level individually chosen franchisethe place of residence of the insured person and the degree of supplementary benefit coverage chosen complementary medicine, routine dental care, semi-private or private ward hospitalisation, etc.
The insured person has full freedom of choice among the approximately 60 recognised healthcare providers competent to treat their condition in their region on the understanding that the costs are covered by the insurance up to the level of the official tariff.
There is freedom of choice when selecting an insurance company to which one pays a premium, usually on a monthly basis. If a premium is higher than this, the government gives the insured person a cash subsidy to pay for any additional premium. The compulsory insurance can be supplemented by private "complementary" insurance policies that allow for coverage of some of the treatment categories not covered by the basic insurance or to improve the standard of room and service in case of hospitalisation.
This can include complementary medicine, routine dental treatment and private ward hospitalisation, which are not covered by the compulsory insurance. As far as the compulsory health insurance is concerned, the insurance companies cannot set any conditions relating to age, sex or state of health for coverage.
Although the level of premium can vary from one company to another, they must be identical within the same company for all insured persons of the same age group and region, regardless of sex or state of health.
