The search to maintain a sustainable health care system often results in health care users facing increased costs. The burden of collective expenditure is shifted onto individuals, which could have
an impact upon the affordability of care. One third of Dutch health care users find health care currently not affordable for themselves. Almost half believe that the rising costs of health care may prevent them from using care in the future. Monitoring whether health care users experience problems can provide an insight into unintended effects, such as inequalities in access and affordability, which are not in accordance with goals of the health system.
