New Research from EBRI: Many Support Lower Cost Sharing to Change Health Care System Use
Date:5/5/2009

survey data. Obese individuals and smokers are generally less likely than those who are not to support lowered cost sharing for engaged patients, according to a breakdown of the survey results.

Men are much more likely than women to think that cost sharing should vary with an individual's level of engagement in their own health care, the breakdown also showed. Younger individuals are generally more likely than older individuals to support lower cost sharing for those who comply with patient engagement rules. In addition, Asians are across the board more likely than other race/ethnic groups to support the concept. Non-Hispanic blacks are least likely to support lower cost sharing, while Hispanics and non-Hispanic whites are in the middle.

Additional information about the 2008 EBRI/MGA Consumer Engagement in Health Care Survey appeared in the November 2008 EBRI Issue Brief and December 2008 EBRI Notes, both also available at www.ebri.org.

EBRI is a private, nonprofit research institute based in Washington, DC, that focuses on health, savings, retirement, and economic security issues. EBRI does not lobby and does not take policy positions. www.ebri.org
