Health Policy Center

The Urban Institute's Health Policy Center analyzes trends and underlying causes of changes in health insurance coverage, access to care, and use of health care services by the entire US population. Researchers address issues that arise from the inevitable trade-offs among health care costs, access, and quality.

The Center's web site, healthpolicycenter.org , provides extensive research and analysis of key health issues including: private insurance, the uninsured, Medicaid, Medicare and SCHIP, disability and long-term care, vulnerable populations and health care reform, in addition to many others.
