The major health insurance provisions of the Affordable Care Act go into effect in 2014, with significant implications for both insurance markets and health care delivery. Over the next year, Columbia University’s Sherry Glied and colleagues will examine federal data sets to gauge the potential effects of the reform law in areas of keen interest to policymakers. The team’s research agenda will likely include: developing projections of health care use by the newly insured, investigating the likelihood that employers will adjust the composition of their workforces to avoid the requirements of the health reform law, and analyzing spending across the health sector to identify opportunities for productivity improvements. In addition to preparing papers on these likely topics, the team will provide programming support for Commonwealth Fund staff and grantees.
