018 Solidarity, Satisfaction, and Segmentation. How Program Design and Welfare Regimes Shape Individual Attitudes and Outcomes in the field of Health Care

Wednesday, July 12, 2017: 9:00 AM-10:45 AM
Turnbull Room (University of Glasgow)
The papers on this panel examine the relationship between program structures and invididual attitudes and outcomes in the field of health care. The last two decades have witnessed a surge in research concerning the determinants of individual attitudes concerning the welfare state. This literature addresses two kinds of dependent variables: attitudes toward the welfare state in general, including redistribution, and attitudes concerning specific sectors of the welfare state, such as old-age protection, education, or health care. This panel enters the debate about the drivers of sector-specific attitudes and outcomes in the field of health care, offering both cross-sectional and country-specific analyses of the effects of the public-private mix in health care on support for public health care provision in Germany (Immergut & Burlacu) and on satisfaction with the health care system in the Netherlands (Anderson & Roescu). Roots analyzes 2014 European Social Survey data to investigate whether and how different welfare regimes and health care systems mediate the relationship between employment status and access to health care. Taken together, the papers aim to advance our understanding of the ways in which health care system structures influence both individual attitudes and experience with the health care system.
