Modeling Options for Improving Health Insurance in New York


Senior staff at the United Hospital Fund (UHF) and Commonwealth Fund will jointly develop a framework for expanding and improving insurance coverage for New Yorkers. Key elements of the framework will include: 1) achieving major reductions in the numbers of uninsured people; 2) reducing "churning" in coverage and insurance instability; 3) making insurance affordable for lower-income working adults; and 4) leveraging public insurance programs to improve quality and efficiency. The project team will explore possible ways of financing a coverage expansion—from tapping into existing flows of funds to identifying new financing sources—and estimate the impact on coverage and costs. UHF will provide cofunding for the project, in addition to convening state health policy leaders to discuss coverage and financing issues.
