The Impact of Recent Changes in Health Care Coverage for Low-Income People: A First Look at the Research Following Changes in Oregon's Medicaid Program
Oregon recently restructured its Medicaid program through a Section 1115 waiver and other program changes, largely in response to particularly difficult state budget problems. This report summarizes key findings on the impact of Oregon's changes, based on work conducted by a research collaborative within the state. The experience in Oregon may be instructive, as other states have implemented or are considering implementing similar changes.
