Healthcare systems worldwide are very different, and each country has its own system. The differences between the systems include the availability of healthcare services and coverage of healthcare costs, inclusion in the solidarity system, management method, organization, financing, available resources, etc. The socialistic healthcare systems are the most characteristic and most socially oriented, comprehensive and market systems, which are still in place in some parts of the world.
Social Health Insurance
Social health insurance is a contract between a client and insurance organization based on which the insurance organization is obliged to reimburse a certain amount of funds to an insured person or, most typically, to partially or fully cover the costs of healthcare services in case an event against which a person is insured takes place. Social insurance is compulsory. Every person in a particular group must be insured and pay a certain amount of funds as contribution.
