This reduction in patients will also ensure specialists are able to see more complex cases with more available time. Another efficient advantage is due to the fact that on average primary level health care are less expensive compared to secondary and tertiary health care such as specialists. This means that due to gatekeeping, patients that don’t require specialist (secondary health care) do not get to see them, reducing in cost majorly. For example, a study that was conducted in 2014 found that since Austria is not subjected to gatekeeping, patients in Austria tend to seek specialist 4 times more compared to countries that are subjected to gatekeeping (Laura, 2015). This means that cost is higher due to higher over-utilization of
