Health care renunciation for economic reasons in Switzerland

Published in Swiss medical weekly. 2011, vol. 141, w13165
Abstract Most societies elaborate ways to contain increasing health care expenditures. In Switzerland out of pocket payments and cuts in the catalogue of reimbursed services are used as cost-containment measures. The aims of the study were to estimate the extent of health care renunciation for economic reasons and to identify associated factors.
