Focus Areas

Eye on the States

CHIR researchers monitor and analyze state action in all 50 states and the District of Columbia related to a wide range of legal and policy decisions that impact the availability, affordability and adequacy of private health insurance markets. This data, as well as the analysis of emerging trends, best practices, implementation and enforcement challenges, has be available to state and federal policy makers and health insurance regulators, critical stakeholders and the media.


The Center on Health Insurance Reforms is engaged in insurance market research to support policymakers’ understanding of how federal and state policies affect insurance coverage access and affordability.

Strategic Consulting & Resources

CHIR experts work intensively with state officials and consumer organizations to provide timely, strategic and actionable policy expertise to inform advocacy, policymaking and implementation at the federal and state levels. We also develop resources that support a deeper understanding of private insurance regulation for policymakers and consumer organizations.
