This paper presents a model that explains the growth of public health expenditure in Italy in the period 1960-1996. It is argued that the choice of the budget for health care is made using a mixed incremental expenditure process in which the final allocation process is the result of a bargaining process between the Central Government and the agency that is responsible for the provision of the service. The estimation results shows the validity of the model; in particular it is shown that the growth of private health expenditure allows Central Government to reduce the relative weight of his expenditure.
