Health insurance coverage trends during Trump Administration assessed

Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health researchers published an analysis of how health insurance coverage has changed under the Trump Administration in the March 15, 2018 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

The authors, Benjamin Sommers, associate professor of health policy and economics; Kathryn Clark, research assistant, and Arnold Epstein, John H. Foster Professor of Health Policy and Management and chair, Department of Health Policy and Management, assessed coverage trends from 2012 to 2017. Among their findings was that approximately one-fifth of the insurance coverage gains between 2013 and 2016 were reversed by the end of 2017.
