Dr. Thomas DeLeire, Professor of Public Policy at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, is leading an evaluation of utilization patterns among Wisconsin’s BadgerCare Core Plan enrollees, and the findings from this evaluation can inform what we might expect to see under the broader coverage expansions of the ACA. On this SHARE webinar, Dr. Tom DeLeire presents findings from his analysis of the Wisconsin experience, using the State’s administrative eligibility and enrollment records, administrative claims data, and claims from a large private integrated health system to examine a variety of utilization measures for Core Plan enrollees. These measures include outpatient visits, emergency department visits, and hospitalization.
