Medicaid on the Eve of the Affordable Care Act: What are the Research Priorities?

Abstract

The School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) at Indiana University and the Urban Institute cosponsored a conference in November 2013 to identify high-priority research questions and gaps in our knowledge related to changes in the Medicaid program occurring under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This summary of the conference proceedings includes a status report on the major policy changes that occurred around the country in Medicaid under the ACA and during the 2013 open enrollment period, and an assessment of pressing research questions on topics related to Medicaid, including opportunities in enrollment and coverage; quality of care and outcomes; access to care; and cost impacts.
