Abstract

  1. What are the direct costs of caring for the eligible population of the programs (e.g., medications, transports, accommodation and caring)?
  2. What are the indirect costs of caring for the eligible population of the programs (e.g., opportunity cost of family carers, cost of alternative programs)?
  3. What are the outcomes of national health/disability insurance programs to their target population (i.e., QALY, DALY, labour force participation)?
  4. What is the increment cost-effectiveness ratio of these programs?
  5. Are these programs cost-effective in caring for their eligible population?
  6. What are additional effects (e.g., employment, income) of the programs to the target population?
  7. What are the spillover effects of the programs to non-eligible population (e.g., employment and income of family carers, prices of health/disability cares, number of service providers)?

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
