This paper aims to enhance fiscal expenditure efficiency of NHI through adoption of internal competition.
Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR), a local regression analysis which allows the spatial non-stationarity of relationships between variables to be examined, was applied to impose target expenditure on NHI Corporation sub-branches and to reflect each of the branches’ distinctive characteristics.
Outcome of the research shows that there exist various contributing factors behind variation of medical costs by regional headquarter or by sub-branch. It is, however, deemed necessary to adopt internal competition to better manage relevant expenditures. Instead of adopting a competition model under full market condition, it is desirable to adopt one under managed or controlled circumstance. Adoption of risk management assessment program activated in countries where multiple insurance agencies are available would be an appropriate alternative. Responsible institutions’ effective management capabilities are required to ensure effective implementation of internal competition. Refurbishment of duties and responsibilities of NHI Corporation and Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service is, thus, necessary. There exist both positive and negative sides when refurbishing institutional functions and duties. Cautious and prudent approaches and decision making are, thus, keys in this regard.
It is important to trace and tackle down regulatory or systematic impediments. First of all, it is necessary for Ministry of Health and Welfare, the responsible institution, and NHI Corporation, the implementing institution to strengthen their shoulder-to-shoulder partnership. Under current partnership setting, NHI Corporation is hardly able to function under its own discretion. Its function is within the scope of the implementation guideline and is also under strict supervision of Ministry of Health and Welfare, the responsible institution. Active inter-branch competition was difficult to initiate under such setting. Other countries, on the other hand, have empowered health insurance agencies to fiscally function under their own discretion to some extent. Review in this context is deemed necessary.
