Selection and moral hazard effects in healthcare

Publication

In the Netherlands, average healthcare expenditures of persons without a voluntary deductible are twice as high as average healthcare expenditures of persons with a voluntary deductible. When assessing the effects of voluntary cost-sharing in healthcare on healthcare expenditures, it is important to disentangle moral hazard from selection: are healthcare expenditures low because people pay (a bigger share of) their healthcare expenditures out-of-pocket? Or are people with higher cost-sharing levels healthier? In this study, we separate selection from moral hazard for the combined mandatory and voluntary deductible in the Netherlands. We use proprietary claims data from Dutch health insurers and exploit with a panel regression discontinuity design that we can observe healthcare expenditures before and after the deductibles kick in for 18 year olds.

Infographics op het CPB: de forties zijn back!

Article (in Dutch only)

In maart is het Centraal Economisch Plan (CEP) 2018 verschenen. 80 pagina’s met vele tabellen, tekstboxen, alinea’s met dikgedrukte, topische zinnen, grafieken, infographics plus de bijbehorende vlog beschrijven hoe de Nederlandse economie ervoor staat. Waarom al deze toeters en bellen? Het is ook het CPB niet ontgaan dat mensen informatie beter begrijpen en onthouden wanneer ze worden verbeeld. Daarom zet het CPB verschillende middelen in om vrij droge en technische materie zo helder mogelijk uit te leggen aan Nederlandse burgers, politici en beleidsmakers. Al meer dan 70 jaar publiceren wij het CEP, maar zo kleurrijk en vormrijk als dit jaar, was het CEP nog nooit. Kortom: met ons veelvoud aan communicatiemiddelen zijn wij hartstikke bij de tijd!
