Willingness-to-Pay for Parallel Private Health Insurance: Evidence from a Laboratory Experiment
(with Kate Cuff , Jerry Hurley, Logan McLeod, Robert Nuscheler, and David Cameron)
Canadian Journal of Economics , 45(1), 137-166, 2012
Abstract: Debate over the effects of public versus private health care finance persists in both academic and policy circles. This paper presents the results of a revealed preference laboratory experiment that tests how characteristics of the public health system affect a subject's willingness-to-pay (WTP) for parallel private health insurance. Consistent with the theoretical predictions of Cuff et al. (2010) , subjects’ average WTP is lower and the size of the private insurance sector smaller when the public system allocates health care based on need rather than randomly and when the probability of receiving health care from the public system is high.
