  1. Columns:
  2. 1: Name of intervention
  3. 2: dYHL=YHL for the row intervention minus YHL for the Status Quo
  4. 3: dYOL=YOL for the row intervention minus YOL for the Status Quo
  5. 4: dYSL=YSL for the row intervention minus YSL for the Status Quo
  6. 5: d$ = Total medical expenditures for the row intervention minus expenditures for the Status Quo.
  7. 6: Incremental worth-adjusted years of life (worth) of the row intervention minus worth of the Status Quo, calculated as dYHL + .5*dYSL.
  8. 7: Level of α required for the row intervention to provide as much incremental worth as the One-Shot intervention, calculated as the column 6 entry for One-Shot divided by the column 6 entry for the row intervention, multiplied by 0.10.
