Change Agent Chat Episode 17 – Duke University Graduate Students

Graduate students from Duke University used CO APCD data to investigate the effect of Colorado’s health exchange on health care utilization and learn how the variation in exchange premiums across the state was affected by the interaction of market structure, selection, and location. During this Chat, we learn what the students discovered and whether there is a correlation between getting a plan from the Exchange and health care service utilization.

Host: Tamaan Osbourne-Roberts, MD, CIVHC’s former CMO
