How Affordable are State Coverage Plans? (2008)
Principal Investigator: Elizabeth Kilbreth, PhD, University of Southern Maine
Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont have all enacted strategies to expand health insurance to people who would otherwise be uninsured. This study will use program enrollment and utilization to assess the effects of premium requirements and participant cost-sharing on access to care. The investigators will use a cross-sectional study using multivariate modeling and qualitative policy analytic techniques and will create person-level data files that link claims information with income and demographic data.
