  摘要|Abstract

  People may be unaware of their unhealthiness and thus make suboptimal decisions in insurance participation. Using national representative samples of the elderly in US and China, we find that the unawareness of unhealthiness is significantly associated with lower socio-economic status, poorer health, and less insurance participation. We further find that accurate health information provided through physical examinations induces relatively higher participation afterwards suggesting information as an important mechanism. These findings contribute a new explanation for the insufficient participation among poor people and advantageous selection in health insurance.
