At the request of Minnesota’s State-Based Health Insurance Marketplace, MNsure, researchers from the University of Minnesota’s State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) compiled data from a variety of sources to analyze, at an aggregate level, the shifts in health insurance coverage that have taken place in Minnesota since the fall of 2013. Support for this work was provided through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s State Health Reform Assistance Network.
As states are gearing up to collect health coverage and access data in 2015, SHADAC convened a web-assisted conference call to guide this process and generate ideas. Natalie Triedman from the Colorado Health Institute and Rebekah Gould from the Oregon Health Authority shared their experiences selecting new reform-relevant content for the Colorado Health Access Survey (CHAS) and the Oregon Health Insurance Survey (OHIS), respectively. They were joined by Sharon Long and Michael Karpmann from the Urban Institute, who shared lessons learned from the Health Reform Monitoring Survey (HRMS).
The State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) is a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and a part of the Health Policy and Management Division of the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota
