About This Collection

Health Affairs Health Policy Briefs provide clear, accessible overviews of timely and important health policy topics for policymakers, journalists, and others concerned about improving health care in the United States.

They are produced by Health Affairs through a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The briefs explore competing arguments made on various sides of a policy proposal and point out wherever possible the relevant research behind each perspective. They are reviewed by distinguished Health Affairs authors and other outside experts.
