State Health Policy

Mathematica researchers work closely with states to understand their unique circumstances and to answer their most important health policy questions. Currently, our researchers help to ensure that policymakers and stakeholders in nearly 40 states have the knowledge they need to make informed decisions. Key topics include:

  • Evaluating state health insurance markets
  • Modeling changes in health insurance regulation
  • Supporting the development of state health insurance exchanges
  • Assessing trends in health care costs
  • Evaluating state health care programs for children
  • Researching ways to meet the needs of special populations
  • Analyzing state public health initiatives
