The difference between the mean scores of expectation before (4.45±0.56) and after (4.36±0.53) the plan was not much (P ≤ 0.047), but the mean of perceptions after (4.01±0.67) the plan was higher than before (3.52±0.82) the plan (P ≤ 0.001). There was a significant statistical difference between the gap of expectations and perceptions in all aspects of the model before (-0.93±0.90) and after (-0.35±0.79) the health reform plan (P ≤ 0.001).
