Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to consider whether and when competition law is applicable to State-owned health-care providers operating within a scheme intended to provide universal coverage free at the point of delivery and funded by general taxation. Applying the principles developed by the Court of Justice to determine the scope of the competition rules it is clear that health-care providers of all types fall within the scope of the EU competition rules and that such entities have been treated as within the scope of the competition rules.
