Abstract

Insufficient health coverage inevitably engenders “catastrophic health expenditure.” Catastrophic health expenditure means that households have to spend out-of-pocket a substantial share of their disposable income on health services. Catastrophic health expenditure has been pointed to in many previous studies as a cause for a quality-of-life decline, impoverishment, and continued poverty. However, such previous studies, conducted as they are based on segmented cross-sectional data, are not much of help in grasping how much impact catastrophic health expenditure has on household poverty. For a thoroughgoing understanding of how responsible catastrophic health expenditure is for the impoverishment of some households, longitudinal analysis will have to be employed. This study explores, through longitudinal analysis, the impact of catastrophic health expenditure on poverty, and attempts to identify the characteristics of those who are constrained in the use of services by the burden of out-of-pocket health expenditure.
