Behavioral Option Value and Product Set Choice

We propose a behavioral theory of consumers’ option value for sets from which they consume a product in the future. For example, consumers may choose between health insurance networks from which they select a provider for treatment later. Results from two experiments support our hypotheses and illustrate the proposed approach.
