  • Supporting Decision about Health Insurance to Improve Care for the Uninsured

    New

    PI: Mary C. Politi, PhD

    The uninsured are disproportionately low-income and are more likely to suffer from untreated or poorly-managed chronic health conditions.  Yet making an informed choice is challenging for individuals with little prior experience with this task and for those with limited health literacy and numeracy skills. Most individuals fall in the low-to-middle end of the health insurance literacy spectrum, and only 24% of uninsured individuals are confident that they understand health insurance concepts and terms. Without understanding insurance information, individuals are unlikely to make an informed choice that allows them to pay for care to manage and improve their health. The project was supported by the National Institute on Minority Health and Disparities of the National Institute of Health under award number: R01MD008808. (09/24/2014 - 05/31/2017)

  • Interactive CHAT Prototype

    PI: Susan D. Goold, MD, MHSA, MA

    Develop a prototype to adapt an existing physical game board for understanding and choosing benefits of a health care plan to an electronic version. CHAT, in its original form, is a game-like exercise designed to help people pick health insurance benefits. CHAT presents the challenge of a full array of possible health care options, but limited resources. The goal of the exercise is to help people better understand health insurance and become more involved in designing group health insurance plans. Throughout the exercise, tradeoffs have to be made between competing needs for limited resources. (07/15/2000 - 01/31/2001)
