  1. Robust standard errors in brackets
  2. The dependent variables are dummy taking value of one if individuals paid for the non-waiting consult
  3. Column 2 presents the results by gender (interacting with an indicator for males). Column 3 shows estimates by type of floor in the individual’s dwelling and column 4 shows interactions of the price and time variables with an indicator of whether the standard deviation in the announced waiting time during the day of the patient’s visit was higher than the median in our sample
