Authors' recommendations: Out of 1,907 respondents who showed consistency, the average WTP per QALY was 30.5, 29.9, and 40.1, 38.3 million KRW for the open ended Random Effect Probit (REP) estimate, Bivariate Probit (BP) estimate, and Turnbull estimate. All the methods showed monotonically increasing WTP for larger health gains (recovery from severe states) and it was 40.3, 63.8, 62.5, and 66.3 million KRW for the open-ended, REP estimate, BP estimate, and Turnbull estimate, respectively.
