|Abstract:||Health Literacy (HL) is an important skill for health relevant decisions. Limited HL is associated with poorer health outcomes but little is known about the economic implications of limited HL. We assessed 1) the costs of limited HL for the health care system, and 2) the costeffectiveness of interventions to improve limited HL.|
