This article examines the transmission of shocks among different sectors of the health care industry using financial market data in an excess-return model. As suggested by the nature of the reimbursement schemes, we find a significant linkage between the payor and product sectors. A significant and stronger linkage between the payor and provider sector exists. Given its competitive and well-diversified operating environment, the product sector may be better positioned to absorb shocks from the other health care sectors.
