ILO/HEALTH, the ILO Actuarial Health Model, is a powerful and flexible tool to facilitate quantitative analysis and reforms, for both contributory and non-contributory health care schemes.
Key features of ILO/HEALTH
Dynamic parameters: Users can adjust the projection time period, nominal/real value, gender, age and eligibility conditions within models to suit a range of needs.
User-defined packages: Users can flexibly define health package to suit their national contexts, using a range of health interventions, differentiated provider payment methods, establishing the cost/fees associated with each intervention, and, where applicable, setting co-payment amounts.
Multi-scheme, multi-population group: n:n mapping between health packages and objective population groups, and defines a set of health packages.
Distinct payment methods: Each health package can be linked to a unique payment method to account for different eligibility criteria for different health interventions, e.g. linking inpatient care to case-by-case payments, or primary care to capitation.
Comprehensive output tables: The model generates outcome tables and indicators at multiple levels, enabling a variety of approaches to assess the pension system's performance. Analysis can be conducted at the population group, scheme, and aggregate levels. Outcome tables cover both demographic and financial aspects, providing a holistic perspective.
