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.

This presentation of SHARE-funded research was given by Joel Cantor, ScD, Director of the Rutgers University Center for State Health Policy at the 2012 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting in Orlando, FL, on June 25, 2012.  The analysis looks at the impact of the Affordable Care Act's young adult dependent coverage expansion on coverage among eligible young adults and, in particular, on those young adults targeted by prior state-level young adult dependent coverage laws.  The authors find a rapid and substantial increase in dependent coverage overall and the possibility of a greater ACA impact on young adults targeted by prior state-level young adult expansions.
