KNG Health Develops Health Reform Model

May 2, 2018

KNG Health recently unveiled its KNG Health Reform Model (KNG-HRM), a microsimulation model that uses data from the American Community Survey, the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, and other data sources to estimate coverage effects of health reform proposals.  As the U.S. Congress released several legislative proposals intended to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.  KNG Health used the microsimulation model to estimate the effects of each proposal on health insurance coverage (Medicaid, non-group, and employer-subsidized insurance) and federal spending for each state and Congressional District. These analyses assisted stakeholders in understanding the impacts of these policies on coverage and Federal spending both at the national and local level.  The model is now being used to assess a proposal to provide coverage to the uninsured through government-backed loans.
