    Is There Migration-Related Inequity in Access to or in the Utilisation of Health Care in Germany?

    This paper analyses immigrants' access to health care and utilisation of health care services in Germany. Thereby, it is investigated if there is inequity in access to or in the utilisation of health care services due to a lack of language skills or due to a lack of information about the health care system (approximated by years since migration)among first- and secondgeneration immigrants. The data ...

    In Vino Pecunia? The Association between Beverage-Specific Drinking Behavior and Wages

    The positive association between moderate alcohol consumption and wages is well documented in the economic literature. Positive health effects as well as networking mechanisms serve as explanations for the "alcohol-income puzzle". Using individual-based microdata from the SOEP for 2006, we confirm that this relationship exists for Germany as well. More importantly, we shed light on the alcohol-income ...

    Is There a "Dead-Anyway" Effect in Willingness to Pay for Risk Reduction?

    In einem neueren Beitrag diskutieren Pratt and Zeckhauser (JPE, 1996), welches Maß der marginalen Zahlungsbereitschaft (WTP) von Individuen für die Reduktion ihrer Sterbewahrscheinlichkeit bei öffentlichen Entscheidungen über gefahrenerhebliche Projekte verwendet werden sollte. Sie schlagen vor, die gemessene WTP um den so genannten "Dead-anyway"-Effekt zu berichtigen, der besagt, dass die WTP mit ...

    Wettbewerb aller Krankenversicherungen kann Qualität verbessern und Kosten des Gesundheitswesens senken

    Das präsentierte und diskutierte Modell eines sozialgebundenen Krankenversicherungswettbewerbs zeigt zum Ersten, dass ein derartiges System an vielen Stellen vom Staat reguliert werden muss. Es ist deutlich komplizierter als die bislang in der Diskussion befindlichen Lehrbuchmodelle und die Reformvorschläge, die lediglich einem Agenda Setting dienen und notwendigerweise nur Prinzipien postulieren. ...

    Late-Life Decline in Well-Being across Adulthood in Germany, the UK, and the US: Something Is Seriously Wrong at the End of Life

    Throughout adulthood and old age, levels of well-being appear to remain relatively stable. However, evidence is emerging that late in life well-being declines considerably. Using long-term longitudinal data of deceased participants in national samples from Germany, the UK, and the US, we examine how long this period lasts. In all three nations and across the adult age range, well-being was relatively ...

    One Last Puff? Public Smoking Bans and Smoking Behavior

    This paper investigates the short-term effects of public smoking bans on individual smoking behavior. In 2007 and 2008, state-level smoking bans were gradually introduced in all of Germany's sixteen federal states. We exploit this variation in the timing of state bans to identify the effect that smoke-free policies had on individuals' smoking propensity and smoking intensity. Using rich longitudinal ...

    The Effect of Job Displacement on Subsequent Health

    Using data from the 1994-1996 waves of the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP), this prospective longitudinal study investigates the association between job displacement and subsequent self-assessed health (SAH). The sample consists of 253 displaced workers and a comparison group of 6,934 continuously-employed workers. Controlling for baseline SAH and standard demographic characteristics, we find no ...

    Risikostrukturausgleich am Scheideweg: Senkung der Wirtschaftlichkeitsanreize für die Krankenkassen sollte vermieden werden

    Eine Reform des Risikostrukturausgleichs in der gesetzlichen Krankenversicherung wird von vielen Seiten angemahnt. Nun liegen drei Gutachten mit konkreten Vorschlägen dazu vor. Der Gesetzgeber hat die Wahl zwischen einer Verfeinerung des bisherigen Konzepts durch die Einbeziehung weiterer Risikoparameter und einem Einstieg in den Ausgleich der tatsächlichen Ausgaben. Letzterer würde die ohnehin geringen ...

    Die Anwendung der Wettbewerbs- und Kartellvorschriften im Gesundheitswesen: Status Quo und wettbewerbsökonomische Implikationen

    The latest health care reforms in Germany increased the scope for competition in Germany's compulsory health care system. Health insurances can now negotiate bilaterally contracts with service providers as well as so-called rebate contracts with pharmaceutical firms. In addition, health insurances can offer a greater variety of contractual options (returns and allowances) to their customers. In this ...

    Long-Term Absenteeism and Moral Hazard: Evidence from a Natural Experiment

    Sick leave payments represent a significant portion of public health expenditures and labor costs. Reductions in replacement levels are a commonly used instrument to tackle moral hazard and to increase the efficiency of the health insurance market. In Germany's Statutory Health Insurance (SHI) system, the replacement level for periods of sickness of up to six weeks was reduced from 100 percent to 80 ...
