Payer peut nuire à votre santé : une étude de l’impact du renoncement financier aux soins sur l’état de santé
In this paper, we analyse self-assessed unmet needs (SUN) for financial reasons and then study their consequences on health status four years later using ESPS data, a French general population survey on health, health care and insurance. Financial hurdles in accessing care as assessed by SUN are principally explained by lack of complementary health insurance coverage and life course episodes, in particular past and present socio-economic conditions and perspectives. The analysis also shows that difficulties in accessing care contribute to health inequalities.
