报告题目: Patient Cost Sharing, Healthcare Usage, and Health Expenditure

摘要:This paper examines the effect of patient cost sharing on healthcare usage, health expenditures and health. Exploiting a policy experiment and using a regression discontinuity design, we find that a 10 percentage-point sharp decline in patient cost sharing at age 80 increases the likelihood of hospitalization within a month by 7.5 percent, times of hospitalization by 7.8 percent, and total expenditures by 18.7 percent. In addition, the decline in patient cost sharing decreases out-of-pocket expenditures by 51 percent. We also find that there is substantial heterogeneity across income and hospitals. We find no effect on mortality.
