Abstract

Although the Unified Healthcare System provides universal coverage, about 25% of the population in Brazil has some form of private healthcare. Considering that the population is aging, the prevalence of chronic diseases and the high costs associated with healthcare, the goal of this study is to assess if the barriers to access and use of the services offered by healthcare plans, expressed as beneficiary complaints, have a greater impact on the elderly than on adults and children. Transverse, exploratory study using a quantitative descriptive approach and secondary data provided by the ANS (the National Regulatory Agency for Private Health Insurance and Plans). This study analyzed complaints filed with the ANS by beneficiaries in the Southeast of Brazil between 2010 and 2012. The study population corresponded to 92,235 complaints. The elderly filed proportionately more complaints (60.8 vs. 25.5 complaints per 10 thousand beneficiaries). The most frequent (68.1%) complaints by the elderly were related to coverage. The results reinforce the idea that the organizational elements of private healthcare plans affect especially those groups most likely to use healthcare plans.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 December 2016.
All research outputs
#7,559,893
of 12,536,156 outputs
Outputs from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#172
of 505 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#158,241
of 332,967 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
#4
of 6 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,536,156 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 505 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 332,967 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 6 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 2 of them.
