Changes in out-of-pocket payments on utilisation of health care services

The five main objectives of this review are:

  1. To assess whether utilisation of a health service increases, decreases, or stays the same when out-of-pocket payments for a health service are removed
  2. To assess whether utilisation of a health service increases, decreases, or stays the same when out-of-pocket payments for a health service are introduced;
  3. To assess whether utilisation of a health service increases, decreases, or stays the same when out-of-pocket payments for a health service change;
  4. To assess whether health status of patients using a health service increases, decreases, or stays the same when out-of-pocket payments for a health service change;
  5. To assess whether patient satisfaction with a health service increases, decreases, or stays the same when out-of-pocket payments for a health service change.

This is a protocol.
