Panel Session 2: The challenges of PCG schemes
PCG schemes may add limited value and prove costly when they are not designed properly. This can include fundamental design futures such as: eligibility criteria, fees, coverage ratios, and payment rules. In addition, governments may also confront large imbalances requiring significant and recurrent contributions if the PCG schemes are not carefully designed from the start.
The panel session will explore the policy implications of a poorly designed PCG scheme and it will describe in detail the up-front and operational challenges to establish or scale up an efficient and cost effective PCG scheme.
