The Grossman model of health demand is a model for studying the demand for health and medical care outlined by Michael Grossman in a monograph in 1972 entitled: The demand for health: A theoretical and empirical investigation

The Grossman model of health demand is a model for studying the demand for health and medical care outlined by Michael Grossman in a monograph in 1972 entitled: The demand for health: A theoretical and empirical investigation. The model based demand for medical care on the interaction between a demand function for health and a production function for health. Andrew Jones, Nigel Rice, and Paul Contoyannis call the model the "founding father of demand for health models".

Michael Grossman is one of the founders of the field of health economics, who has contributed enormously to our understanding of the demand for health, the relationship between education and health, determinants of infant health, and the economics of risky health behaviors.

The demand for health and medical care is analysed within a generalised Grossman-type health investment model. Its underlying assumptions are shown to differ from those employed earlier in a manner which avoids some of the criticisms levelled at Grossman's model. The comparative static predictions of the generalised model are examined; and it is demonstrated that most previous health investment models are derivable from it. Also, the present model is applicable to a new, wider range of problems thus increasing the scope of economic explanations of health behaviour.

The demand for health is somewhat more complicated than the demand for a typical product. Here, the individual demands health and not health care. The demand for health care is, therefore, a derived demand. This was first discussed by Michael Grossman in 1972. The amount of health care demanded is sometimes measured by the quantity of services used, such as inpatient days, outpatient visits, or prescriptions. More often, it is measured by the total cost of all these services.

A seminal work in health economics, Michael Grossman’s The Demand for Health, introduced a new theoretical model for determining the health status of the population when first published in 1972. It is well past time to bring this important work back into print.
