Wetsvoorstel winstuitkering zorgverzekeraars aangenomen

Interesting development in the Dutch Healthcare Law: when the current system had been set up, the government foresaw a ban on profits distribution to shareholders, given the public interest of social healthcare.

The ban has been extended from time to time and the nth extension is about to arrive.

The original purpose of this law was to force companies to lower their premium but this is not automatically the outcome. In fact, in order to preserve quality and accessibility, the law also prohibits profits to be used to lower premia.

Last but not least, this makes it harder for new players to enter this market.

Is it just, is it not? What is just? To be or not to be?
