Authors' recomendations: The budget impact of the osteoporosis coverage extension plan was suggested to be 147 billion Korean won in the 2009 plan and 133.3 billion Korean won in the 2010 plan (the coverage will be extended to the lowest T-score less than -2.5 and one year coverage (scenario 2)) After adjusting for significant factors (age, sex, region, marital status, number of family members, and monthly average income of the family), the maximum annual WTPs increased to 24,000 Korean won per 10% rise of the vertebral fracture risk and increased to 28,800 Korean won per 10% rise in the hip fracture risk. To build an osteoporotic fracture prediction model, logistic regression analyses were performed for each gender and the two fracture groups (major osteoporotic fractures and all osteoporotic fractures). For females, the lowest T-score, age, and weight were significant factors that predicted osteoporotic fractures for both groups of fractures while the lowest T-score and age were only significant factors predicting osteoporotic fractures for both groups of fractures in males.
