C.I. denotes lower and upper limit of 95% confidence interval.

1 Registration status was dichotomised (reference = registered).

2Variables were dichotomised chronic health conditions (reference = absence of disease), health problems in previous 30 days (reference = none), doctor consultation in previous 30 days (reference = none), hospitalisation in previous 12 months (reference = none).

3Source of healthcare service utilisation was segregated into three tiers (Table 1) (reference = tier1).

Statistical significance of p-values are denoted by * (p < 0.05), ** (p <0.01) & *** (p < 0.001).
