  • United Hospital Fund of New York Promoting the Expansion of Health Insurance in New York State Priority Area: Expanding Health Care Coverage $776,725

    Approximately 2.5 million New Yorkers lacked health insurance in 2007, according to estimates from the United Hospital Fund of New York. Public and private programs exist to increase coverage, but policymakers face several challenges in expanding coverage through these programs, including how to enroll and retain people in public programs, how to create options for low-wage workers, and how to enroll higher income people who go without coverage. In the first of two grants from the New York State Health Foundation’s Coverage Consortium initiative, the United Hospital Fund analyzed a multi-staged action plan to promote the expansion of insurance in New York State. It also examined the private insurance market in New York through an objective analysis of the health care market and health care organizations, including self-funded arrangements, and reviewed relevant insurance laws and regulations.

    This project was part of a larger NYSHealth Coverage Consortium that funded 10 grants to seven universities, policy institutes, and community agencies across the State, supporting projects that could inform State health reform efforts, offer ways to streamline enrollment in public programs, significantly reduce costs and improve quality, and test ideas for expanding coverage among small employers, sole proprietors, and self-employed people.

  • The Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government Reforming New York's Small Group Insurance Market: An Assessment of State Policies Priority Area: Expanding Health Care Coverage $312,806

    As the number of uninsured has increased and employer-based coverage has declined, policymakers have begun to focus their attention on the small group market. This focus suggests the need for closer analytical assessment of State activities aimed at improving cost and accessibility in the small group market. In the first of two grants from the New York State Health Foundation’s Coverage Consortium initiative, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government conducted an in-depth analysis and investigation of the applicability of various initiatives and policy options for New York State.
