Poverty, Inequity, and Disparity -- 10/1/20 Daypass -- The Short-Term and Long-Term Impacts of Health Care Access for Low Income Americans
Speaker: Dr. Sarah Miller Dr. Miller received a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Illinois in 2012. She joined the University of Michigan in 2014 after being an economics professor at the University of Notre Dame. Dr. Miller is currently a professor of Business Economics and Public Policy at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. Her work examines the effect of health care policies on economic and health outcomes. Speaker’s Synopsis: Over the past 50 years, the United States has implemented policies to improve access to health care for low-income adults and children, including through the Medicaid program and, most recently, the Affordable Care Act. The recent COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the importance of such care access, not only for beneficiaries themselves, but for public health within our communities. To what extent have these policies been successful in improving access to care, and what are the implications of these policies for the health of our most vulnerable residents in the future?
