Understanding health-care utilization is important to design efficient and effective health-care systems. Towards this end, we propose a relatively simple and intuitively appealing microeconometric framework based on a two-part model to investigate the determinants that increase the probability and the length of waiting for a health-care service provision. This article attempts to accommodate all data features in one model focusing on overdispersion in the data due to unobserved heterogeneity and zero-inflation, with an application to the Italian National Health System.
