ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the dual health care system in Chile. It says that the duality of the system increases inequality that prompts the government to introduce reforms in health care provision. It states that the dual system results for a low income and high risk populations in the public sector, while it brings high income and low risk populations in the private sector. It presents the four bills that were passed on the Chilean parliament which include Private Health Law and Health Authority and Management Law. It also lays the universal health care plan and the challenges that surround the implementation of the system.
