History[ edit ] The first move towards a national health insurance system was launched in Germany inwith the Sickness Insurance Law. Industrial employers were mandated to provide injury and illness insurance for their low-wage workers, and the system was funded and administered by employees and employers through "sick funds", which were drawn from deductions in workers' wages and from employers' contributions.
Other countries soon began to follow suit. In the United Kingdomthe National Insurance Act provided coverage for primary care but not specialist or hospital care for wage earners, covering about one third of the population.
The Russian Empire established a similar system inand other industrialized countries began following suit. By the s, similar systems existed in virtually all of Western and Central Europe.

From the s to the s, Southern and Western European countries began introducing universal coverage, most of them building upon previous health insurance programs to cover the whole population. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia retained and reformed its universal health care system,  as did other former Soviet nations and Eastern bloc countries.
Health care economics Universal health care in most countries has been achieved by a mixed model of funding. Almost all European systems are financed through a mix of public and private contributions. Some nations, such as Germany and France  and Japan  employ a multipayer system in which health care is funded by private and public contributions.
However, much of the non-government funding is by contributions by employers and employees to regulated non-profit sickness funds. Contributions are compulsory and defined according to law.
A distinction is also made between municipal and national healthcare funding. For example, one model is that the bulk of the healthcare is funded by the municipality, speciality healthcare is provided and possibly funded by a larger entity, such as a municipal co-operation board or the state, and the medications are paid by a state agency.
A paper by Sherry A. Glied from Columbia University found that universal health care systems are modestly redistributive, and that the progressivity of health care financing has limited implications for overall income inequality.
