PPI’s work aligns with areas of interest to federal and state policymakers, employers, consumers, researchers, and other stakeholders, including issues relevant to Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial health insurance. We also support the advancement of critical areas of focus in health policy, including consumer engagement, access, affordability and the cost of healthcare, quality of care, prescription drugs, social drivers of health, disability and aging, digital healthcare, and the transformation of healthcare delivery.
Our work includes evaluating the impact on health outcomes and healthcare utilization from changes to managed care delivery, such as the investment in services to address health-related social needs or plan benefit designs that are tailored for better management of chronic conditions.
We also invest in research and analysis to understand the implications of policy proposals and enacted policy changes, such as states’ approaches to delivering certain Medicaid benefits or changes to risk adjustment in the Medicare Advantage program.
Finally, PPI partners with academic institutions to support empirical analyses that can inform future policy development and delivery system reform, such as understanding the market dynamics influencing prescription drug competition and prices.
