The State Health Access Reform Evaluation (SHARE) program awarded nine new grants to fund research addressing health reform issues that states face as they work to improve coverage and access.  This is SHARE's third round of grants since the program began in 2007.  The new grants, which range in length from 12 to 24 months, will offer timely insights into a variety of health reform issues.  The projects will explore topics such as Medicaid expansion for childless adults, value-based insurance design for state employee health plans, approaches to health care coordination/integration, and the production of reliable small area estimates of health insurance coverage and access.  This document provides an overview of the nine grants awarded under the third round of SHARE funding.

In this brief, SHARE grantee Deborah Chollet and her co-authors Allison Barrett and Amy Lischko analyze risk selection over time in Massachusetts' CommonWealth Care program, which serves low-income adults ineligible for Medicaid, much like a Basic Health Plan under the ACA.  Based on their findings, the authors offer lessons for other states considering whether to form a Basic Health Plan, looking at questions of program design, impacts on the commercial market, and financing and operations.
