With the future of public health insurance subsidies in the United States and many countries in flux, gauging the effects of public insurance on health care spending, financial security, and physical and mental health is crucial. Such effects are notoriously hard to assess, however, because there are many differences between uninsured and insured populations that may affect health.
Dean Baicker and colleagues used a rare opportunity to conduct a randomized, controlled evaluation of the effects of the US Medicaid program on a wide range of outcomes. Dean Baicker will present recent findings from this and other studies to shed light on the likely effects of changes in health policy.
