Abstract:

This paper investigates financial toxicity of patients with cancer and survivors in Indonesia and how this condition affects their risk attitude. Financial toxicity is the harmful financial burden caused by cancer treatment. Data were collected using questionnaires. We adopted Comprehensive Score for Financial Toxicity (COST) measure and Domain-Specific-Risk-Taking (DOSPERT) scale to measure our variables. Our analysis shows that financial toxicity is experienced by the respondents (n = 194). We also find that risk attitude is not only influenced by financial toxicity, but also by age, number of dependent children, cancer stage, religious disaffiliation, and the use of health insurance.
