【题目】:How Does Health Insurance Expansion Affect Hospitals? Evidence from Rural China

【摘要】:Using the largest expansion of health insurance expansion program in Rural China, we examine the impacts on incomes and expenditures of hospitals in China. Consistent with the moral hazard literature, we find that the new rural cooperation health insurance scheme (NRCHIS) remarkably increases the hospital income, which is mainly contributed by the increased volume of hospital inpatient care visits rather than price per visit or out-patient care visits. Meanwhile, the hospitals spend more on medical consumables, paid more to the doctors, and invested more in costly large equipment. In contrast, we do not find significant evidence on the number of doctors. The findings contribute to the growing literature about the impact of health insurance on the health supply side.
