How Do We Finance Universal Health Care in the Philippines?

This paper addresses the following health policy questions: How much will universal health care (UHC) cost?; Can we generate the needed revenues?; What would be the optimal combination of tax-generated revenues and social health insurance (SHI) premium-generated revenues to meet the financial cost of UHC?; And should the SHI premiums for the informal sector be contributory or non-contributory (subsidized through taxes)?
