Traditionally, linear regression has been the technique of choice for predicting medical risk. This paper presents a new approach to modeling the second part of two-part models utilizing extensions of the generalized linear model. The primary method of estimation for this model is maximum likelihood. This method as well as the generalizations quasi-likelihood and extended quasi-likelihood are discussed. An example using medical expense data from Washington State employees is used to illustrate… CONTINUE READING
