This study investigates hospital physicians’ view regarding two regulations in the specialist healthcare services in Norway. More specifically, the regulations in focus are: a) prioritization of patients for specialized healthcare services with regard to cost-effectiveness of the treatment and b) activity-based financing of hospitals. Using a survey among physicians in 2014, and by the means of descriptive statistics and regression analyses, the findings indicate that the costeffectiveness criteria regarding prioritization is considered as an important factor for making decisions on prioritization of patients. However, the effect of activity-based financing on quality and equality of treatment is considered more negative than positive.
