Examining Insurance Issues and Developing Policy Options to Expand and Establish Coverage, 2004–05


The Fund's Task Force on the Future of Health Insurance explores ways to extend health insurance coverage to uninsured working Americans and their families. In the year ahead, this core grant to Columbia University will support analysis of cutting-edge reforms to help keep low-income children continuously insured; examine emergency room use by patients who lack insurance or have unstable coverage; and assess how unstable or otherwise inadequate coverage affects the quality and continuity of patient care. The grant will also support Fund Task Force staff and grantees by providing programming support for the analysis of large federal databases regarding out-of-pocket and catastrophic health costs, the near-poor, and the latest trends in coverage for young adults. http://www.columbia.edu
