Discussion Paper: Performance evaluation framework for government-sponsored health insurance programmes

This paper proposes a preliminary assessment and framework for the performance evaluation of government-sponsored health insurance programmes. It consolidates different performance measurement criteria used by five country programmes and builds on previous work conducted by the Microinsurance Network, devising Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for microinsurance and highlighting key indicators that can help programmes make effective and sustainable management decisions. The five country programmes are Rhastriya Swasthya Bima Yojna (India), National Health Insurance Scheme (Ghana), Universal Coverage Scheme (Thailand), Cellule Technique d’Appui aux Mutuelles de Sante (Rwanda), and Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (Indonesia). We also reviewed conceptual frameworks recommended by international organisations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank.

Quote of the Day

"I was stranded in New York City during the 2003 blackout, and for the next two years, I carried a small flashlight in my backpack. The flashlight did not cost much, but its potential to help in another blackout was obvious and to use it I needed only to press a button. For microinsurance to be accepted on a massive scale, it cannot cost much, its value must be obvious, and it must be simple to use." -- Brandon Matthews | Head of Microinsurance, Zurich Financial Services
