In this section, we will present you with hypothetical scenarios regarding your health. Since these scenarios can be complex, please read each question carefully.

Throughout the survey, we will reference your health as a numbered score. Your health score will range from 0 to 100. A health score of 0 is equivalent to death while a health score of 100 is perfect health.

On a scale of 0-100, how would you rate your health today? Please click anywhere on the slider below or use the textbox to enter your answer.

For reference, the scale below indicates a few conditions and how someone may view their corresponding health scores.

Please answer the next question assuming the following about your health:

A few years ago, your health severely deteriorated due to an unknown cause. Doctors could not identify the cause and could not do anything to improve your health. Today, your health score is a 20. Prior to your health’s deterioration, your health score was 100.

How would you view a health score of 20 on a scale from 0 to 100?

Good news! Recent medical breakthroughs have allowed doctors to discover the cause of your health deterioration. Not only that, there are now two medical treatments available. Both treatments guarantee that the condition will be completely cured in one year, returning your health score to 100, where you can expect to live for 30 more years at this health level. However, the treatments will have varying effects during the coming year of treatment.

For the next set of questions, you will be shown the potential outcomes resulting from your two medical treatment options.

Treatment A will have a "certain outcome," in other words, a guaranteed health score that will result if you select the treatment A option.

Treatment B will have varying outcomes, dependent on if you are a Type I patient or a Type II patient.

You have an equal chance of being a Type I patient or a Type II patient, but you will not know which patient type you are until after you have completed your treatment.

The goal of each task in this section is to find the switch point at which you would consider a certain outcome over the treatment with two random outcomes occurring at a 50% likelihood.

See the picture below for example.

To find this switch point, we will ask you to select between one option (on the left side) or another option (on the right side).

For the next set of questions, please select if you would rather have Treatment A or Treatment B.

Treatment A will result in one certain outcome while Treatment B will result in varying outcomes depending on if you are a Type I or Type II patient.

Assume for each of the following treatment decisions (each row), that is the one decision you will make regarding your received treatment for the next year. Each decision is mutually exclusive, meaning that one decision has no impact on subsequent or previous decisions.

For example, in row 1, after your health condition of 20 health points, you have the option between Treatment A that gives you a certain outcome of 23 points or Treatment B that will either give you 22 points or 71 points at a 50/50 chance. You would select the bubble for Treatment A if you prefer the certain outcome or the bubble for Treatment B if you prefer the treatment where you may have a health of 22 or 71 after treatment at a 50/50 chance.

For the next decision (row 2), again you would start from your beginning 20 health points. You now have the option between a "Treatment A" which now gives a certain outcome of 28 health points or "Treatment B" which still can give you 22 points or 71 at a 50/50 chance.

As a reminder, you have a health score of 20 prior to receiving either treatment. The scale of health scores is included below for reference.

Throughout the next section, we will examine your preferences over a health condition. The health condition we will examine is mobility as measured by the 6-minute walking test.

In the 6-minute walking test, we can examine your mobility by seeing how far you can walk or run during 6-minutes.

In the following scenarios, you will be provided a baseline health state, certain outcomes, and a treatment on a scale of 100 to 6,500 feet during the 6-minute walking test. For reference, the scale below indicates a health states and their corresponding 6-minute walking test distance.

Please answer the next question assuming the following about your health:

A few years ago, your health seriously deteriorated due to an unknown cause. Doctors could not find the cause and could not do anything to improve your health. Today, due to your health condition, you can only walk 1180 feet on the 6-minute walking test. Prior to your health deteriorating, you could run 6,000 feet.

How would you view spending walking 1180 feet on the 6-minute walking test?

Now assume the following:

Treatment A will result in one certain outcome while Treatment B will result in varying outcomes depending on if you are a Type I or Type II patient. Type II patients must now also take a pill that will increase or decrease mobility by 275 ft within the next year. Whereas, Type I patients do not have to take the pill.

You have an equal chance of being a Type I patient or a Type II patient, but you will not know which patient type you are until after you have completed your treatment. For Type II patients, the pill has an equal 50% chance of increasing or decreasing mobility on the 6-minute walking test.

Following treatment, your health will return to full after one year and you will maintain that level for the next 30 years until your death.

Treatment A will result in one certain outcome while Treatment B will result in varying outcomes depending on if you are a Type I or Type II patient. Type II patients must now also take a pill that will increase or decrease mobility by 275 ft within the next year. Whereas, Type I patients do not have to take the pill.

You have an equal chance of being a Type I patient or a Type II patient, but you will not know which patient type you are until after you have completed your treatment. For Type II patients, the pill has an equal 50% chance of increasing or decreasing mobility on the 6-minute walking test.

Following treatment, your health will return to full after one year and you will maintain that level for the next 30 years until your death.

As a reminder, you have a mobility of 1180 feet on the 6-minute walking test prior to receiving either treatment. A scale is provided below for reference.

Each treatment decision you make has no impact on the other treatment outcomes. For example, your decision for row 1 has no impact on your outcome for row 2, and so on and so forth. However, you must make a decision for each row.

For the next set of questions, we will ask you to decide between two potential gambles.

Gamble A will result in a single guaranteed won amount, while Gamble B will result in varying winnings depending on if you are a Type I or Type II contestant.

Assume for each of the following lottery decisions (each row), that is the one decision you will make regarding your received gamble. Each decision is mutually exclusive, meaning that one decision has no impact on subsequent or previous potential winnings made during each task.

For example, in row 1, you have the option between Gamble A that gives you 100% chance winnings of $3,000 or Gamble B that will either give you $2,000 or $51,000 at a 50/50 chance. You would select the bubble for Gamble A if you prefer the certain outcome or the bubble for Gamble B if you prefer the gamble where you may win $2,000 or $51,000 at a 50/50 chance.

For the next decision (row 2), you now have the option between Gamble A which now gives a certain outcome of $8,000 or Gamble B which may give you $2,000 or $51,000 at a 50/50 chance.

The goal of each task in this section is to find the switch point at which you would consider a certain outcome over the gamble with two random outcomes occurring at a 50% likelihood.

Now assume the following: Gamble A will result in certain winnings while Gamble B will result in varying winnings depending on if you are a Type I or Type II contestant.

Type II contestants now must enter a subsequent gamble where they may lose or win $5,000 from the initial winnings. For example, in the first scenario below, the Type II contestant may increase their winnings of $52,000 to $57,000 or lose their $5,000, to $47,000.

The likelihood of winning or losing the subsequent gamble is 50%.

Again, you will not know if you are a Type I or Type II contestant until after you complete the gamble and learn your winnings. You have an equal chance of being a Type I or Type II contestant.

Throughout the next section, we will examine your preferences over a health condition. The health condition we will examine is cognition as measured by the time to complete the Trail Making Task.

The Trail Making Task is a test where participants must connect the dots between alternating numbers and letters in ascending order. An example of a completed Trail Making Test is below.

Typically, participants take 50-60 seconds to complete the test. Completion speed can be a good proxy for cognition. For references as to what different speeds represent in terms of cognition, please see the following scale.

Please answer the next question assuming the following about your health:

A few years ago, your health seriously deteriorated due to an unknown cause. Doctors could not find the cause and could not do anything to improve your health. Today, due to your health condition, your cognition is such that you would need 230 seconds to complete the Trail Making Task. Prior to your health deteriorating, assume you were able to complete the task in 45 seconds.

How would you view a 230 second completion time due to your illness?

Good news! Recent medical breakthroughs have allowed doctors to discover the cause of your health deterioration. Not only that, there are two medical treatments available. Both treatments guarantee that your condition will be completely cured in one year, returning your cognition to a state where you can complete the Trail Making Task in 45 seconds again, and you can expect to maintain this level of cognitive ability for 30 more years. However, the treatments will have varying effects during the coming year of treatment.
For the next set of questions, you will be shown the potential outcomes resulting from your two medical treatment options.

Treatment A will have a "certain outcome," in other words, a guaranteed Trail Making Task time for the next year if you select the Treatment A option.

Treatment B will have varying outcomes, dependent on if you are a Type I patient or a Type II patient.

You have an equal chance of being a Type I patient or a Type II patient, but you will not know which patient type you are until after you have completed your treatment.

The goal of each task in this section is to find the switch point at which you would consider a certain outcome over the treatment with two random outcomes occurring at a 50% likelihood.

For the next set of questions, please select if you would rather have Treatment A or Treatment B.

Treatment A will result in one certain outcome while Treatment B will result in varying outcomes depending on if you are a Type I or Type II patient.

Assume for each of the following treatment decisions (each row), that is the one decision you will make regarding your received treatment. Each decision is mutually exclusive, meaning that one decision has no impact on subsequent or previous decisions made during each task.

For example, in row 1, after your health condition impacting your cognition to 230 seconds on the Trail Making Test, you have the option between Treatment A that gives you a certain outcome of 223 seconds or Treatment B that will either give you 226 seconds or 115 seconds at a 50/50 chance. You would select the bubble for Treatment A if you prefer the certain outcome or the bubble for Treatment B if you prefer the treatment where you may have a cognition leading to a 226 second Trail Making Test performance or 115 Trail Making Test performance after treatment at a 50/50 chance.

For the next decision (row 2), again you would start from your beginning cognition of 230 seconds on the Trail Making Test. You now have the option between Treatment A which now gives a certain outcome of 212 seconds on the Trail Making Test or Treatment B which still can give you 226 seconds or 115 seconds at a 50/50 chance.

Following treatment, your health will return to full after one year and you will maintain that level for the next 30 years until your death.

As a reminder, you are currently projected to 230 second completion time prior to receiving either treatment. A scale is provided below for reference

Each treatment decision you make has no impact on the other treatment outcomes. For example, your decision for row 1 has no impact on your outcome for row 2, and so on and so forth. However, you must make a decision for each row.

Throughout the next section, we will examine your preferences over a health condition. The health condition we will examine is weeks spent bedridden.

In the following scenarios, you will be provided a baseline health state, certain outcomes, and a treatment on a scale of 0 to 100%. The scale refers to the percent of time in the next year you will be able to perform usual activities or become bedridden. For reference, the scale below indicates a couple conditions and their corresponding percentage of able to perform usual activities in the next year.

Please answer the next question assuming the following about your health:

A few years ago, your health seriously deteriorated due to an unknown cause. Doctors could not find the cause and could not do anything to improve your health. Today, due to your health condition, you can only participate in your usual activities for 20% of the year. For the remaining 80% you will be bedridden due to your condition. Prior to your health deteriorating, you spent zero percent of the year bedridden, and 100% able to perform your usual activities.

How would you view spending 80% of a full year bedridden due to your illness?

Good news! Recent medical breakthroughs have allowed doctors to discover the cause of your health deterioration. Not only that, there are two medical treatments available. Both treatments guarantee that your condition will be completely cured in one year, returning your health to a state where you will no longer need to spend any time bedridden, and you can expect to live for 30 more years with no concern of being bedridden due to the illness. However, the treatments will have varying effects during the coming year of treatment.

For the next set of questions, you will be shown the potential outcomes resulting from your two medical treatment options.

Treatment A will have a "certain outcome," in other words, a guaranteed proportion of the year where you can perform your usual activities that will result if you select the treatment A option.

Treatment B will have varying outcomes, dependent on if you are a Type I patient or a Type II patient.

You have an equal chance of being a Type I patient or a Type II patient, but you will not know which patient type you are until after you have completed your treatment.

The goal of each task in this section is to find the switch point at which you would consider a certain outcome over the treatment with two random outcomes occurring at a 50% likelihood.

For the next set of questions, please select if you would rather have Treatment A or Treatment B.

Treatment A will result in one certain outcome while Treatment B will result in varying outcomes depending on if you are a Type I or Type II patient.

Assume for each of the following treatment decisions (each row), that is the one decision you will make regarding your received treatment. Each decision is mutually exclusive, meaning that one decision has no impact on subsequent or previous decisions made during each task.

For example, in row 1, after your health condition impacting your ability to perform usual activities to 20% of the next year, you have the option between Treatment A that gives you an improvement of 23% of the next year able to perform usual activities or Treatment B that will either give you 22% or 71% at a 50/50 chance. You would select the bubble for Treatment A if you prefer the certain outcome or the bubble for Treatment B if you prefer the treatment where you may have 22% of the next year able to perform usual activities or 71% of the next year able to perform usual activities, after treatment at a 50/50 chance.

For the next decision (row 2), again you would start from your beginning level of 20% of the next year able to perform your usual activities. You now have the option between Treatment A which now gives a certain outcome of 28% of the next year able to perform usual activities or Treatment B which still can give you 22% or 71% of the next year able to perform usual activities at a 50/50 chance.

As a reminder, you are currently projected to only be able to spend 20% of the year participating in your usual activities prior to receiving either treatment. A scale is provided below for reference.

Now assume the following:

Treatment A will result in one certain outcome while Treatment B will result in varying outcomes depending on if you are a Type I or Type II patient. Type II patients must now also take a pill that will increase or decrease their vision by 10 points, within the next year. Whereas Type I patients do not have to take the pill.

You have an equal chance of being a Type I patient or a Type II patient, but you will not know which patient type you are until after you have completed your treatment. For Type II patients, the pill has an equal 50% chance of improving or worsening your vision by 10 points.

Following treatment, your health will return to full after one year and you will maintain that level for the next 30 years until your death.

As a reminder, you are currently projected to have 20/162 vision prior to receiving either treatment. A scale is provided below for reference.

Each treatment decision you make has no impact on the other treatment outcomes. For example, your decision for row 1 has no impact on your outcome for row 2, and so on and so forth. However, you must make a decision for each row.

In this section, we will present you with hypothetical scenarios regarding your health. Since these scenarios can be complex, please read each question carefully.

Throughout the survey, we will reference your health as a numbered score. Your health score will range from 0 to 100. A health score of 0 is equivalent to death while a health score of 100 is perfect health.

On a scale of 0-100, how would you rate your health today? Please click anywhere on the slider below or use the textbox to enter your answer.

For reference, the scale below indicates a few conditions and how someone may view their corresponding health scores.

Please answer the next question assuming the following about your health:

A few years ago, your health severely deteriorated due to an unknown cause. Doctors could not identify the cause and could not do anything to improve your health. Today, your health score is a 20. Prior to your health’s deterioration, your health score was 100.

How would you view a health score of 20 on a scale from 0 to 100?

Good news! Recent medical breakthroughs have allowed doctors to discover the cause of your health deterioration. Not only that, there are now two medical treatments available. Both treatments guarantee that the condition will be completely cured in one year, returning your health score to 100, where you can expect to live for 30 more years at this health level. However, the treatments will have varying effects during the coming year of treatment.

For the next set of questions, you will be shown the potential outcomes resulting from your two medical treatment options.

Treatment A will have a "certain outcome," in other words, a guaranteed health score that will result if you select the treatment A option.

Treatment B will have varying outcomes, dependent on if you are a Type I patient or a Type II patient.

You have an equal chance of being a Type I patient or a Type II patient, but you will not know which patient type you are until after you have completed your treatment.

The goal of each task in this section is to find the switch point at which you would consider a certain outcome over the treatment with two random outcomes occurring at a 50% likelihood.

See the picture below for example.

To find this switch point, we will ask you to select between one option (on the left side) or another option (on the right side).

For the next set of questions, please select if you would rather have Treatment A or Treatment B.

Treatment A will result in one certain outcome while Treatment B will result in varying outcomes depending on if you are a Type I or Type II patient.

Assume for each of the following treatment decisions (each row), that is the one decision you will make regarding your received treatment for the next year. Each decision is mutually exclusive, meaning that one decision has no impact on subsequent or previous decisions.

For example, in row 1, after your health condition of 20 health points, you have the option between Treatment A that gives you a certain outcome of 23 points or Treatment B that will either give you 22 points or 71 points at a 50/50 chance. You would select the bubble for Treatment A if you prefer the certain outcome or the bubble for Treatment B if you prefer the treatment where you may have a health of 22 or 71 after treatment at a 50/50 chance.

For the next decision (row 2), again you would start from your beginning 20 health points. You now have the option between a "Treatment A" which now gives a certain outcome of 28 health points or "Treatment B" which still can give you 22 points or 71 at a 50/50 chance.

As a reminder, you have a health score of 20 prior to receiving either treatment. The scale of health scores is included below for reference.
