  1. The effects of health insurance on access to new medical technologies.

    Article - En anglais

    We examined the use of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, kidney stone lithotripsy, and bone marrow transplant among patients with different health insurance plans in California.

    HMO enrollees were less likely to receive these procedures compared with fee-for-service patients.

    Our results have implications for the inflationary effects of technology under managed care.
