Journal Title:Investigaciones ANDINA

Introduction: analyze the efficiency in the southern departments of Bolivar (Colombia) in relation to the affiliation of people to the subsidized health regime during the 2007 to 2008 time period. Methods: application of the Data Envelopment Analysis to the 45 municipalities in the department of Bolivar (Colombia) based on information in relation to the number of members, total cost of allocated resources and actual expenses. Results: the results of this analysis for the period under review showed that less than 25% of the municipalities are in the efficient frontier. Conclusion: the resources devoted to health care have not been used correctly in targeting the most vulnerable population groups, as well as in securing and monitoring the scheme by these municipalities, which brings deficiencies in the membership of a greater number of people.
