Selection in Massachusetts' Commonwealth Care Program: Lessons for State Basic Health Plans
Presentation by Dr. Allison Barrett (Chapin Hall, University of Chicago) at AcademyHealth's 2011 Annual Research Meeting. Dr. Barrett provides an overview of the Commonwealth Care ("CommCare") program, discusses whether premium subsidies helped the program to attract low-risk enrollees, and examines the characteristics of CommCare enrollees as compared with individuals purchasing coverage in the commercial market. The presentation concludes with recommendations based on the results of this study for states considering the creation of a Basic Health Plan under the federal Affordable Care Act.
