Abstract: Health service utilization is a fragile behavioural pattern that is affected by a large number of factors. They include patients' culture, value, belief, experience, finance ability, etc. However, the most common health service utilization decision that a local citizen has to make is the choice between utilizing the service provided either by the public or the private sector, especially when we talk about hospitalization service. This study explores the principal factors that lie behind and support this decision and how other factors, for instance presence of medical insurance cover, is likely to affect this choice. We would also study about how this choice is affected by perceived changes in price level of the public sector and by how much public patients can live up with a prospective fee raise.
