Weak Signal's description 
Cubacks in welfare based on an ageing society cause higher health care costs. Increasingly people have to take care of costs for themselves. More and more private insurances covering additional costs are established. Therefore, people have a higher interest in healthcare issues and are increasingly better informed.
