Health care without managed care in Japan.

Abstract

The best gross health indices in the world and universal coverage with no overt signs of rationing characterize the Japanese health care system. The delivery system, which consists primarily of private physicians and private hospitals, is functionally independent, but the financing system is strictly regulated. The author argues that this combination is the key to the system's unique success.
