I completely take you point on service provision Shanta. However I would suggest that all over the world countries have learnt that it is more efficient and equitable for the government to be heavily involved in all 3 of the main financing functions - resource generation, pooling AND purchasing. Only a tiny number of rich countries try and regulate a market of private health insurances and the most famous of these, the US, is notoriously inefficient and inequitable. It's also clear that the trend in the US is towards more of a socialized health financing system.
