Subcontract to RTI on ASPE RFTOP#11-233-SOL-00250: Design of the Evaluation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
This project represents a first step in the larger evaluation of coverage expansion resulting from the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This task order will develop a design and methodology to evaluate the implementation and outcomes of the Medicaid Expansions under ACA. The evaluation will focus on the effects of the Medicaid expansion on the newly eligible enrollees. The University of Minnesota team will be supporting this effort by providing expertise on analysis of federal data, design and analysis of state surveys, evaluations of state Medicaid programs and health reform, and identifying data needs for evaluations of the ACA.
