000030369 520__ $$9eng$$aPrevious studies have viewed Swiss health-care financing as  particularly regressive. However, as the OECD Review of the Swiss  Health System (2011) stated, the income-related inequities and the inter  cantonal variations are still unexplored due to a lack of available  information. The present paper aims to fill this information gap  concerning the Swiss health system by exploring the differences in the  level of regressivity of health-care system financing across cantons  and over time using household data. The empirical evidence confirms  that the Swiss health-care system financing has remained quite  regressive since the major reform of 1996 and that the variations in  equity across cantons are quite significant. The results are an  interesting contribution towards re- thinking a new possible reform of  the Swiss health-care system, as well as for other federal states (such  as the U.S.) that use regulation and subsidies to ensure universal  coverage.
