HYPPAID is a 3-digit-numeric variable.

996: Not in Universe
997: Unknown-refused
998: Unknown-not ascertained
999: Unknown-don't know


For sample adults in 2007 who have seen a practitioner for hypnosis during the past 12 months (HYPYR), HYPPAID reports the respondent's average out-of-pocket cost, in dollars, for each visit to a practitioner for hypnosis.

The 2002 and 2007 NHIS included supplements covering a range of alternative health practices (see ACUYR). Although information about the average out-of-pocket cost for hypnosis is available only for 2007, data about whether any of the costs of hypnosis were covered by insurance is available for 2002 (BIOINSURE).

In addition to including HYPPAID, the 2007 survey includes 19 other variables that provide data on the average out-of-pocket cost per visit to a practitioner or for a class for a particular alternative health modality, as well as data on the cost of alternative health materials purchased by the respondent. See ACUPAID for the full list.


HYPPAID is only available for 2007.
