Adela Luque, Ph.D., is a research associate at The Urban Institute. Her earlier research focused on issues surrounding firm behavior and, in particular, the incentives and workforce effects of businesses' technology adoption and innovation decisions.
Her work at the Health Policy Center includes studies of CHIP participation, on the impacts of health care reform in Massachusetts and Illinois on the health insurance coverage status of children as well as an analysis of how the cost of offering health insurance affects small businesses. She also analyzed mechanisms for improving the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Prospective Payment System for Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities. She is currently conducting research on how health insurance affects access to high quality asthma care for children and contributing in the evaluation of a demonstration project seeking to improve state public benefits systems for families.
Before coming to the Urban Institute she worked at the Center for Economic Studies of the U.S. Census Bureau, the Central Bank of Spain, the Universidad Pablo de Olavide in Spain as well as Fannie Mae.
