Presentations Now Available from AcademyHealth's State Health Research and Policy Interest Group Meeting

The State Health Research and Policy Interest Group held its annual breakfast meeting at AcademyHealth’s National Health Policy Conference on February 9, 2010. The meeting focused on understanding the role states and the federal government play in enrolling new populations in coverage programs. The meeting’s speakers discussed the federal government’s efforts to enroll children in coverage programs under the Children’s Health Insurance Plan, Wisconsin’s efforts at enrollment expansion to ensure its residents have universal access to health insurance, and an analysis of the effectiveness of expansion strategies to enroll low-income adults in state coverage programs.

Presentations from each of the meeting’s speakers can be found here. A detailed summary of the meeting is forthcoming.
