Analyzing the Next Round of Health Reform Proposals


Beginning in 2014, the Affordable Care Act will provide for near-universal health insurance coverage through a substantial expansion of Medicaid eligibility and through subsidized coverage available in the new state-run insurance exchanges. In the year since the law's passage, a number of congressional and state lawmakers have proposed amending the law, and additional proposals are likely to surface in the coming months. Through microsimulation modeling, John Holahan of the Urban Institute and Jonathan Gruber of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will estimate the insurance coverage and government-spending effects of proposed changes. Holahan will model alternative approaches to financing Medicaid and Medicare benefits, while Gruber will estimate the effect of rolling back eligibility for the Medicaid program and subsidized private coverage, as well as the impact of changes to the individual requirement to have insurance.
