"The Out-of-Pocket Method"
"An analysis of 108 surveys in 86 countries has revealed catastrophic payment are incurred by less than 1% of households in some countries and up to 13% in others. Up to 15% of households are pushed into poverty" (WHO, 2005).
How to cope with out of pocket payments:
Two concepts of financial hardship is due to out-of-pocket (OOP) payments are:
1. Catastrophic health expenditure
Catastrophic Health Expenditure
A household's OOP payments are high RELATIVE to the amount of resources that the household must give in comparison to the what services and goods are necessary for their well being.
Financial Risk Protection
Concern that OOP payments can push households below or further below the poverty line.
Household expenditure in this context does not only include cash, but in consumption of products and goods.
