Measuring and Testing for Inequity of Health Care Delivery in Russia
2017
In this work we attempted to test for the presence of horizontal inequity in the delivery of health care in Russia, namely, if the medical care is allocated only on the basis of medical need, rather than any other factor. Using the “separate decision” Two-Part model and a single decision Tobit regression to model medical care expenditures and ordered logit model for the frequency of doctor visits, we identified the presence of health care inequity favoring people in the rich group, citizens of Moscow and Saint Petersburg, and younger people – those who did not attain the status of pensioners yet.
