Sažetak
This paper combines SHARE Corona Survey and SHARE Wave 7 data for 25 European countries and Israel (N = 40, 919) with institutional and epidemic- related country characteristics to investigate healthcare access for Europeans aged 50+ during the outbreak of COVID-19. We use a micro– macro approach to examine whether and to what extent barriers to accessing healthcare measured by reported unmet healthcare needs vary within and between countries. We consider various aspects of barriers and distinguish among: 1) respondents who forewent medical treatment because they were afraid of becoming infected with the Coronavirus ; 2) respondents who had pre-scheduled medical appointments postponed by health providers due to the outbreak ; and 3) respondents who tried to arrange a medical appointment but were denied one. Limited access to healthcare during the initial outbreak was more common for the occupationally active, women, the more educated and those living in urban areas. A bad economic situation, poor overall health and higher healthcare utilisation were robust predictors of unmet healthcare. People aged 50+ in countries of Old Europe, countries with higher universal health coverage and stricter containment and closure policies were more likely to have medical services postponed. Policymakers should address the healthcare needs of older people with chronic health conditions and a poor socioeconomic status who were made more vulnerable by this pandemic. In the aftermath of the health crisis, public health systems might experience a great revival in healthcare demand, a challenge that should be mitigated by careful planning and provision of healthcare services.
