About Us

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 a research center within Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, and work regularly with a multidisciplinary group of faculty and staff dedicated to conducting research on issues related to health policy and health services.

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.
