Who do you think should pay for health? Everyone has a different opinion but despite the myriad answers, there are really only two common viewpoints about who should pay and in this course, we will unpack and dissect them both. We will also take a look at the main drivers which make the health market unique and explore the various funding arrangements for Australia’s health system.
