Hidayat B, Pokhrel S - Int J Environ Res Public Health (2009)

Bottom Line: Once endogeneity of insurance is taken into account, there is a 63 percent increase in the average number of public visits by the beneficiaries of mandatory insurance for civil servants.Individuals' decisions to make first contact with private providers is affected by private insurance membership.However, insurance status does not make any difference for the number of future outpatient visits.

ABSTRACT
We apply several estimators to Indonesian household data to estimate the relationship between health insurance and the number of outpatient visits to public and private providers. Once endogeneity of insurance is taken into account, there is a 63 percent increase in the average number of public visits by the beneficiaries of mandatory insurance for civil servants. Individuals' decisions to make first contact with private providers is affected by private insurance membership. However, insurance status does not make any difference for the number of future outpatient visits.

f1-ijerph-07-00009: Framework to select econometric techniques for modeling the relationships between health insurance and the number of outpatient visits.

Mentions: We carry out several tests in order to evaluate the overall specification of the model. Figure 1 illustrates our operational framework by summarizing what we check and what we do when assumptions are not met. It shows three main steps for choosing the most appropriate econometric technique among the six alternatives explored in this study.
