The impact of having supplementary private health insurance on the uses of specialists
The European Community Household Panel (ECHP) is used to estimate the impact of private health insurance coverage on the use of specialist visits in four European countreis which allow supplementary coverage. The results show that the probability of having private insurance increases with income and with better reported health. Private insurance has a positive effect on the probability of specialist visits in all countries although the magnitude is sensitive to the choice of estimator.
