Using behavioral economics to explain health insurance enrollment patterns
The goal of this project is to develop evidence of the extent to which behavioral factors influence enrollment in health insurance and to identify new levers to increase use of health insurance products. The researchers will produce a background paper that synthesizes and evaluates the evidence for members of the research and policy communities. They will also design (but not carry out) a randomized field experiment to test their hypotheses for use in the real world to increase enrollment.
