Main areas of research

  • The impact of insurance coverage on medical consumption and health care costs, a.o. the disentanglement of the 'pure' insurance effect (moral hazard)

His latest research in this field centres around using diagnostic information - deduced from either previous hospitalizations or specific medications - to improve the risk adjustment system for Dutch health care insurers.
