SHADAC Expertise

Case Studies Related to Medicaid and Marketplace Enrollment

SHADAC was part of a team led by the RAND Corporation that was selected by ASPE to monitor and evaluate Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation, related health policy issues, and other priorities of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). SHADAC conducted qualitative analyses of state experiences with enrolling the Medicaid-eligible population.  The project included semi-structured interviews with state officials and key actors involved in enrollment and outreach efforts (e.g., safety net providers, community advocacy groups, and navigators and assisters). As follow up, SHADAC was recently funded to conduct a similar study aimed at understanding successful Marketplace enrollment strategies.
