Social Market Economy Perspectives

The discussion focuses on whether Malaysia should move to a healthcare system provided by private companies funded by an insurance scheme where the government acts only as a regulator. How would such a scheme work? Would it be more efficient? Would it be fairer in allowing people access? Would it improve quality and medical outcomes for patients? Who would benefit and who will lose?
