Abstract

OBJECTIVES - The aim of our study is to perform a health-economic analysis of diseases related to disturbed neonatal adaptation by assessing the burden of health care costs in Hungary. DATA AND METHODS - Data were derived from the financial dataset of the National Health Insurance Fund Administration (OEP) covering year 2009. Four diseases were included in the analysis: polycystic ovary syndrome (E2820), retinopathy of prematurity (H3510), hyperstimulation of ovaries (N9810) and respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn (P2200). RESULTS - The annual health insurance costs of the assessed diseases were the following: polycystic ovary syndrome: 78.9 million Hungarian Forints (HUF) or 281 160 Euro (EUR), retinopathy of prematurity: 41.3 million HUF (147 090 EUR), hyperstimulation of ovaries: 8.7 million HUF (30 839 EUR) and respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn: 1.562 million HUF (5 567 336 EUR). We found by far the highest annual per capita health insurance expenditure for respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn (1,43 million HUF or 5098 EUR/patient/year). Hyperstimulation of ovaries (58 073 HUF or 207 EUR/patient/year), retinopathy of prematurity (19 513 HUF or 70 EUR/patient/year) and polycystic ovary syndrome (7679 HUF or 27 EUR/patient/year) was associated with significantly lower annual per capita health insurance expenditure. CONCLUSIONS - The diseases related to disturbed neonatal adaptation have substantial annual health insurance expenditures (1 689 million HUF or 6.02 million EUR) and of these diseases respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn has the highest burden of disease.
