common analytic approach for accounting for spillover costs was to add informal caregiving time costs to patient costs (n1⁄432). Few studies included caregiver out-of-pocket costs in the analysis (n1⁄43). When spillover health effects were considered, most studies added informal caregivers’ QALYs to patient values (n1⁄410). Thirty three pairs of ICERs reported results with and without spillover effects. Incorporating spillover effects generally decreased ICERs (making them more favorable) (n1⁄416; 48%) or kept the intervention cost-saving (n1⁄413; 39%); and in fewer cases increased ICERs (n1⁄42; 6%) or produced no change (n1⁄42; 6%).Conclusions:Most dementia/AD CUAs incorporated spillover costs, often as time costs to a caregiver, but considered caregiver health impacts less often. Including spillover effects in analyses generally led to more favorable ICERs. The broader value of a dementia/AD intervention to society may be underestimated without considering these broader spillover effects.
