Based on policy-making models that blend the pluralist, neocorporatist, and neopluralist approaches, the article examines decision-making patterns in the health policy arena in 20th century Chile. During this period, Chile?s political development saw three characteristic phases: liberal democracy, military dictatorship, and "neo-democracy". Accompanying these phases, the article analyzes how health policies have been shaped and what forms of interest mediation physicians have employed since 1924, when Laborers Social Insurance was implemented. Lastly, it offers some hypotheses regarding the decision-making and organizational formats prevalent in the health care sector during the 1990s.
