  1. Discriminating variables between insured and uninsured patients.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To determine the variables that uniquely differentiate between insured and uninsured patients.

    Materials and methods 

    Through a self-administered questionnaire, data were collected from 695 randomly selected insured and uninsured patients from four private hospitals in Riyadh City.

    The questionnaire included socio-demographic and attitudinal variables.

    Stepwise discriminant analysis was used to determine the factors that discriminate between insured and uninsured patients.

    Results 

    Results of the stepwise discriminant analysis indicate that six of the 15 variables were statistically significant discriminating variables between insured and uninsured patients.

    These were : monthly family income, age, number of family members, preference for voluntary health insurance, education and perceived health status.

    All six variables were positively related to having health insurance.

    Conclusion 

    This study highlights the importance of health insurance in the light of the unique characteristic of the Saudi health care system.

    Conduct of further empirical studies is also recommended.

    These studies can focus on a different sample from across the kingdom and also utilize other analytical tools.
