Faculty of the Center on Health Insurance Reforms (CHIR) conduct in-depth research and analysis of the laws, regulation, policies and market practices affecting the affordability, adequacy and availability of health insurance coverage. Our team also monitors surprise medical bill legislation in all 50 states and DC, as well as before the U.S. Congress, giving us a deep understanding of laws across the country and the perspectives of key stakeholders.
