Evaluation of Maine's Dirigo Health Reform Plan


Through its Dirigo health reform plan, Maine seeks to make quality, affordable health coverage available to every resident by 2009, while at the same time slowing growth in health costs. The plan's centerpiece is an insurance subsidy program, DirigoChoice, which offers affordable health insurance to small businesses and to families with low to moderate income. This project will measure the effects of the insurance subsidy on three groups: low- to moderate-income individuals, small employers, and public and private payers. The evaluation, which will cover the program's first two years, will provide state and federal policymakers with information on the impact and replicability of Maine's unique approach to broadening insurance coverage.
