The Urban Institute studies health care costs, access, quality, and coverage to guide state and federal health policy. Using microsimulation tools and rigorous data analysis, our experts predict the trade-offs of reform proposals and policy decisions and identify solutions to get the most value from our health care system. We also conduct on-the-ground research to put our data-driven analysis in the context of real patients, providers, payers, and communities to better address their health care challenges.
