Current Research Programs

Interaction Between Private and Public Sector Prices in Health Care
We evaluate the ability of medical providers to discriminate between public and private sector patents in service provision. If discrimination is not complete then a larger public sector will cause a greater tendency for private prices to converge to public sector prices. We test this hypothesis on a large data set or public and private transacted prices. The results have important managerial and policy implications.
