The choice of dental care sector by young adults before and after subsidisation reform in Finland.
This work is a part of a project, which aims at studying the utilisation of dental care by young adults and the effects of subsidisation reform (SR) on it.
SR was introduced in 1986 for the finnish population born after 1960 and comprised a decrease of about 50% in the out-of-pocket price for dental care both in the public and private sector.
The copayments are paid by the National Health Insurance in the private and municipalities through taxation in the public sector.
In this work, the choice of dental care sector (private or public) before and after the reform and the effect of the reform on the choice are examined.
The choice was measured by revealed preference; i.e. by actual choice in a period of two years before and after the reform.
