Analysis and Technical Assistance in Support of Health Reform, Year 4


Since 1999, Sherry Glied and her research team have conducted timely policy research for The Commonwealth Fund and provided staff with data programming and analysis of federal data sets. Since passage of the Affordable Care Act, the research has yielded important insights on such topics as the revenue implications for states that have not expanded Medicaid, the likely effects of the Cadillac tax, and the law’s effects on the uninsured rate and consumer out-of-pocket spending. Under the current grant, Glied’s team will continue to provide programming and data support for Fund staff and grantee research related to health care coverage and access trends, using the Current Population Survey, National Health Interview Survey, Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey, Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, and other publicly available datasets. In addition, the team will undertake research comparing the experiences of the newly Medicaid insured to the uninsured and to people with private insurance, focusing on financial security, out-of-pocket spending, and access to and use of services. Glied will also explore alternative private health plan designs that might better protect low- and moderate-income households with fluctuating assets. It is expected that policymakers and key stakeholders will gain a better understanding of Medicaid’s value to low-income families as well as possible ways to reduce cost-sharing in private insurance for low- and moderate-income families. The team will support Fund staff and grantees through analysis of federal surveys.
