  1. Robust standard errors in brackets
  2. For participants in the field experiment, the dependent variables are dummy taking value of one if individuals paid for the non-waiting consult. For participants in the CV exercise, the dependent variables are dummy taking value of one if individuals declared they would have p aid for the non-waiting consult, given the hypothetical price and waiting time announced
  3. Table 3 in the main text is the analog of this table. However, in this case we assume a linear probability model and estimate the regression through ordinary least squares (tables in the main text are estimated through a logit regression)
