题目退休对医疗资源利用的影响:来自中国城市的证据

Title:  The impact of retirement on healthcare utilization: Evidence from urban China

 

主讲人赵欣彤

Speaker:   Xintong Zhao

摘要Abstract

本研究使用医保数据研究了退休对中国老年人住院医疗资源利用的影响。利用中国城市的法定退休年龄作为外生变化,我们使用断点回归的方法识别了退休对不同疾病导致的住院的因果效应。结果显示,退休降低了老年人由于传染病和受伤导致的住院风险,同时增加了与慢性病相关的住院风险。退休对不同性别的影响存在异质性,对男性的慢性病和精神障碍住院风险影响更大。此外,我们没有发现退休对男性和女性的次均住院费用存在显著影响。结果表明,退休会导致就医行为的变化,而非健康状况的恶化。

This study examines the causal impact of retirement on inpatient healthcare utilization among older adults in China using a claim data. Using a Regression Discontinuity Design to exploit the statutory retirement age in urban China as exogenous variation in retirement, we find a heterogenous retirement effect by disease categories. The results show that retirement leads to a reduction in hospitalization due to both communicable diseases and injuries, while increase the hospitalization risk due to chronic diseases. We also find substantial gender heterogeneity in the retirement effect, with a larger significant effect on chronic diseases and mental disorders induced hospitalization among males. Retirement has no effect on average hospitalization expenses of both genders. The results suggest that retirement results in changes in health seeking behavior other than health conditions.
