Hungary

Hungary has made the transition from a centrally planned to a market economy, with a per capita income nearly two-thirds that of the EU-25 average. The private sector accounts for more than 80% of GDP. Foreign ownership of and investment in Hungarian firms are widespread, with cumulative foreign direct investment worth more than $70 billion. In 2010 the new government implemented a number of changes including cutting business and personal income taxes, but imposed “crisis taxes” on financial institutions, energy and telecom companies, and retailers. The economy began to recover in 2010 with a big boost from exports, especially to Germany, and achieved growth of approximately 1.8% in 2011. Unemployment remained high, at more than 11% in 2011. Ongoing economic weakness in Western Europe is likely to further constrain growth in 2012.

Hungarian Health Care System

The Hungarian health system is relatively resource intensive and is characterised by high hospitalisation rates, an excess supply of specialists and perverse incentives both for doctors and hospital administrators. Budgetary rules prevent hospitals from properly amortising investments and limit their capacity to manage labour costs. Furthermore inadequate supervision of billing by the state administrator has led to a fraudulent inflation in both the number and the “seriousness” of treatments. Recent reforms have concentrated on containing costs but efforts to improve service delivery and health outcomes have been plagued by problems of institutional conflict. Although cost pressures on the healthcare system are likely to intensify in the future, the economy’s capacity to pay will improve and, as a result, the gap between the quality and quantity of Hungarian versus European healthcare will gradually close. The paper makes a series of concrete policy recommendations, principal of which is that reform should go ahead in an evolutionary manner, albeit with a determined shift in priorities. Emphasis needs to be placed upon measures that support health promotion, while concerted changes are needed at the financial, legal and organisational levels in order to ensure that decision-makers are held accountable and that the authorities are in a position to monitor them. Finally, more emphasis needs to be placed on increasing home-based care, occupational- and physio-therapy services and on making greater use of nursing-homes as opposed to chronic-care hospital beds.
