Indicadores de gastos com serviços médicos no setor de saúde suplementar no Brasil : o caso Sabesprev
The aim of this paper is to present healthcare expenditures indicators of the private healthcare system in Brazil. We use administrative records of a healthcare insurance company that provide collective contracts to its employees. The indicators are classified according to the type of healthcare and age groups. Healthcare classification contemplates four types of services: doctor visits, inpatient care, exams and other types of healthcare services. We also discriminate healthcare indicators by survivorship status. The main results points out that: 1) the desegregation by survivorship status is very important to healthcare expenditures projections – the annual average healthcare expenditure to dead individuals is R$76.000,00 (seventy six thousand of reais) whereas this value is about R$2000,00 (two thousand of reais) for alive individuals: 2) on average women expend more than men along the lifecycle; 3) the expenditure ratio between the oldest and the youngest group is eight times.
