The Role of Supply and Demand in Efficient Health Care Delivery: Evidence from Utah

Register Now!  

The project studies the implications of several distinct approaches to managing consumer health care using an all-payer claims data base from the state of Utah. We use forced switches where consumers must join one insurance model or the other to identify effects on cost and health. We study (i) consumers who join Select Health, which manages care through its health care partner intermountain as we (ii) consumers who join broad network high-deductible plans. We find that these models have a range of different cost and health impacts for consumers.
