I would like to ask you more specific questions about how much your household spent on health services. When answering these questions, think about all of the times that any household member used a health service in the last 4 weeks. Please exclude costs to be reimbursed by insurance and any transportation costs.
In the last 12 months, which of the following financial sources did your household use to pay for any health expenditures?
Payment or reimbursement from a health insurance plan.
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
Payment or reimbursement by health insurance. The amount reported here
should only include costs that were (1) billed to the individual or family and (2) subsequently paid or reimbursed by a health insurance organization. The value of services that the insurance organization provides in-kind or pays directly to providers without billing the individual or family should not be included.
If the respondent only answers with a total amount, record under “other”.
