Micro-Health Insurance in Cambodia
A Randomized Control Trial of Micro-Health Insurance in Cambodia

People who buy insurance are sicker and/or more risk averse than those who don't. Also, Micro-health insurance increases utilization of public health care facilities and protects against asset sales.

Randomly assign coupons giving a discounted price for insurance. Since coupon receipt is exogenous, use these coupons as an instrument for take-up of insurance.
