Stochastic model of demand for medical care with endogenous labour supply and health insurance
The paper proposes a model of demand for medical care under uncertainty. Both health capital and wealth are modelled as Wiener processes. The model uses a continuous time stochastic optimisation technique to derive optimal solutions for consumption, leisure and medical care. Insurance against uncertain medical expenditure is then incorporated into the optimization problem under the assumption of constant relative risk aversion of the value function, and constant elasticity, relative risk...[Show more]
