The Urban Institute's Health Microsimulation Capabilities (Document)
Urban Institute

The Health Insurance Policy Simulation Model (HIPSM) is a detailed microsimulation model of the health care system. It estimates the cost and coverage effects of proposed health care policy options and is designed for quick-turn around analysis of policy proposals—from novel health insurance offerings and strategies for increasing affordability to state-specific-proposals. This document provides an overview of HIPSM, describes the type of policies it can examine and studies that have used the model, and point to potential future studies that the model makes possible, including analyses of options left open to states after health reform.
