Evaluating Vermont's comprehensive reform initiative to provide universal access to affordable health insurance coverage and quality health care

The Foundation's program, State Health Access Reform Evaluation (SHARE), was designed to support research and evaluation of state health reform initiatives and develop an evidence base for future state and federal reform initiatives.This study grant will evaluate Vermont's new health reform initiative. The 2005 Vermont Household Health Insurance Survey and Current Population Survey will be analyzed to assess the impact of the reform on public, private, and self-insured coverage options, enrollment, premiums and other out-of-pocket costs, utilization indicators, program implementation administrative costs, and related measures. Interviews and focus groups with key stakeholders will also be conducted.
