Impact of later retirement on health care expenditures

Institut des Politiques Publiques - PARIS - 2018

The 1993 French pension reform had led to an increase in claiming age (Bozio, 2011). This reform was realized to ameliore the sustainability of pension system. As far as we know, there is very few knowledge of the impact of such reforms on health. In particular, we ignore if the 1993 reform has an impact on health expenditure.
The main objective of this study is to identify the causal impact of an exogenous increase in claiming age on the health care expenditure. A second objective is to identify how individuals react to change in claiming age according to their socioeconomic characteristics. This study could permit to enlight in which extend the 1993 pension reform had had an impact on the insurance expenditures.
