本研究應用Yitzhaki (1979)的相對剝奪感指數,探討其對健保給付與家戶門診自付費用的影響,採用合併橫斷面資料加以分析,民國88–95年「臺灣地區家庭收支調查」。同時考量潛在內生性偏誤的問題,分析方法採用兩階段最小平方法,並做內生性檢定。

The trend of income distribution in Taiwan has been deteriorating during the past two decades. According to statistics, the Gini coefficient and the difference in household income between top 20% to lowest 20% were both found increased. The magnitude was 11% and 22%, respectively. Based on social comparison mechanism, people with lower income or life quality may feel upset or oppressive and then could cause the feeling of “relative deprivation”. Under the relative deprivation, they may be more likely to get sick and result in more medical expenditures. The objective of this paper was to examine whether there is an association between relative deprivation and medical expenditures. The use of tobacco, wine and betel nut were also included in the analysis to control their impacts on relative deprivation, i.e. examining the impact of the mediator.
The Yitzhaki’s index was applied to quantify the relative deprivation. Medical expenditures were grouped into two parts: NHI (National Health Insurance) coverage and out-of-pocket. Data were selected from 1999-2006 Survey of Family Income and Expenditure, which is a pooled cross-section data. To avoid the potential endogenous bias, the two stage least squares and Wu–Hausman test were adopted.
The result showed that relative deprivation has a positive significant effect on both types of medical expenditures. This indicated that people who have higher relative deprivation tended to have more expenditures no matter whether it is out-of–pocket or not. Besides, the impacts of tobacco, wine and betel nut use were shown to be significant. But we do not have strong evidence for a dominant mediator.
Due to the significant impact of relative deprivation, the authority needs to pay more attention on income redistribution policy to reduce the gap of income level and relative deprivation. By doing this, NHI financial crisis may be also improved.
