Mitigating the Effects of High-Risk, High-Cost Populations in the Private Health Insurance Market


Rockefeller Institute Forum, May 21, 2009



Professor Swartz provided an overview of the "Massachusetts experience" with ensuring universal health coverage, with a focus on the need to manage — and contain costs — for people with high medical expenses. In response, New York officials representing the departments of Health and Insurance — Troy Oechsner, Jay Laudato and Eileen Hayes — shared perspectives on New York's challenges in expanding care to more high-risk patients.
