Mission Statement

To improve access to affordable and adequate health insurance by providing balanced, evidence-based research, analysis and strategic advice.

Who We Are

CHIR is composed of a team of nationally recognized experts on private health insurance and health reform. We are based at Georgetown University's Health Policy Institute (HPI), and work regularly with a multidisciplinary group of faculty and staff dedicated to conducting research on issues related to health policy and health services. HPI is affiliated with the University’s public policy graduate programs (the McCourt School of Public Policy).

What We Do

CHIR faculty and staff study health insurance underwriting, marketing and products, as well as the complex and developing relationship between state and federal rules governing the health insurance marketplace. CHIR provides policy expertise and technical assistance to federal and state policymakers, regulators and stakeholders seeking a reformed and sustainable insurance marketplace in which all consumers have access to affordable and adequate coverage.
