Oregon Health Insurance experiment recognized with AcademyHealth HSR Impact Award
Date:2/4/2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 4, 2013) AcademyHealth today awarded its Health Services Research (HSR) Impact Award to work that used for the first time a randomized, controlled study design to answer questions about how access to public insurance affects health, health care use, and other outcomes.

The HSR Impact Award is presented annually to health services research studies that make a clear impact on health policy and practice.

The research was further bolstered by the broad collaboration between academic, non-profit, and public sector researchers, as well as public and private financing.

"This was an unprecedented opportunity to provide the policy community with vital information about Medicaid's effects at a time of major program changes, and the study would not have been possible without the collaboration of a fantastic team of both state policymakers and a team of researchers," said Katherine Baicker, Ph.D., professor of health economics, Harvard School of Public Health and co-principal investigator of the study. "This close partnership, along with generous funding, allowed us to collect data never before available on a wide range of outcomes."

This study has important implications for the costs and benefits of expanding Medicaid.

The initial results received extensive natio
