Small-Area Microsimulation to Study Geographic Variation in Coverage Expansions and Access under the Affordabe Care Act
A key barrier to planning for, implementing, and monitoring the ACA is the inability to produce reliable state and local estimates of coverage and access to care. This project will address this barrier through the employment of a novel reweighting method leveraging the frequency, detail and statistical power of national surveys to facilitate more precise small area estimates. Estimates of insurance coverage expansion populations will be linked to estimates of the health care workforce and medical care system capacity to highlight areas with potential access concerns.
