Insurance Reform

LDI Fellows work on how to optimize insurance, provider, and supplier markets for affordable, accessible quality health care. They explore issues including the role of insurance design in promoting access and value, the effects of rising out-of-pocket costs, and the impact of the Affordable Care Act.

Allison Hoffman, an expert on health care law and policy, examines some of the most important legal and social issues of our time, including health insurance regulation, the Affordable Care Act, Medicare and retiree health care expenses, and Medicaid and long-term care.

In this second brief of our affordability series, we adapt a national-level affordability index to provide state-level data on the cost burden faced by working families who have employer-sponsored insurance (ESI). We examine how this burden varies across states, and how it has changed within states from 2010 to 2016.
