“The Cost of Being Uninsured in America”
“Heidi Allen, social worker turned health policy researcher, has spent the last decade studying Medicaid and exposing some of the persistent myths surrounding the program. As a lead researcher on the most rigorous study of Medicaid to date, known as the Oregon Health Insurance Experiment, Heidi examined causal pathways between Medicaid and patient outcomes, providing a solid ground of evidence to stand on when evaluating the Medicaid program.
With Medicaid expansion up for vote in Idaho and Utah this November, it’s as important as ever to understand exactly what the program has to offer for low-income people across the country. Check out Heidi’s 2017 TEDMED Talk to learn the facts and hear her case for Medicaid expansion.”
