Abstract: We investigate the impact of health expenditure on health outcomes on a large sample of Europeans aged above 50 on individual and country level data. We find a significant negative impact on changes in the number of chronic diseases which varies according to age, health styles, gender, income and education subgroups. Our findings indicate potentially heterogeneous support to health expenditure across interest groups and are robust when we instrument health expenditure with parliament political composition.
