Implementing State Health Care Reform: What Have We Learned From the First Year? The First Annual Report of the Evaluation of Health Reform in Five States

This project provided initial State-specific and cross-State analyses of demonstration impacts on utilization, insurance coverage, public and private expenditures, quality, access and satisfaction. Analyses of all groups is, where possible, stratified by age, income, geographic location, and other relevant demographic variables. Data come from site visit interviews with providers, advocacy groups, and State officials, participant surveys, hospital discharge data, and secondary data sources such as the area resource file and current population survey. During 1996, two important design and funding additions were made to the project: (1) examination of the impacts on the disabled; and (2) assessment of the impacts on mental health and substance abuse service users.
