Estimating the probability and level of ambulatory mental health services use
Analysis of the National Medical Care Utilization and Expenditure Survey for persons with positive out-of-pocket expenses for one or more ambulatory mental health visits indicates that demand for such visits is responsive to price, and considerably more so than demand for health visits. Income, education, and insurance coverage interact in predicting demand, and price elasticity varies across income groups.
