Developing Policy Options to Expand and Stabilize Health Insurance Coverage: Support for Analysis and Technical Assistance


The Fund's Program on the Future of Health Insurance tracks changes in Americans' health insurance coverage, documents the consequences of being uninsured or underinsured, and investigates new policies to expand coverage for working families. This core grant to Columbia University supports the analytical basis for such activities and for other health coverage–related work undertaken by Fund staff, grantees, and the Commission on a High Performance Health System. Over the next year, the Columbia team will: 1) explore the association between coverage and regional variations in costs and medical practice patterns; and 2) develop more accurate cost estimates for coverage expansion proposals, by taking into account potential savings to government, business, and households. In addition, the Columbia researchers will assist the Commission as it develops options for achieving savings and improving health system performance, for example by synthesizing research evidence pertinent to cost estimation and simulation modeling.
