HEER program staff have conducted evaluations or provided policy or program analysis to a range of organizations, government agencies and policymakers, including:
California Simulation of Insurance Markets (CalSIM)
Program staff, in partnership with the UC Berkeley Labor Center, created CalSIM, a micro-simulation model to evaluate how the Affordable Care Act and other health reform proposals might impact employer-based health insurance, family health care expenses, decisions to enroll in Medi-Cal, Exchange coverage, employer-based insurance, and more. With funding from The California Endowment, Covered California
, the California Health Benefits Review Program, and the California Pan-Ethnic Health Network, CalSIM has been used to develop estimates to inform decision-making and planning related to ACA implementation.Learn more
California Health Benefits Review Program (CHBRP)
