East on long-term benefits of health care coverage

East on long-term benefits of health care coverage

Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics, Chloe N. East’s work (Multi-generational Impacts of Childhood Access to the Safety Net: Early Life Exposure to Medicaid and the Next Generation's Health) examines multi-generational impacts of positive in utero and early life health interventions, focused on the 1980s Medicaid expansions. The analysis shows that when babies born with Medicaid coverage grew up and started families of their own, those kids had higher average birth weights.  Data like this (gathered by East and her colleagues Sarah Miller, Marianne Page, Laura R. Wherry) is critical to debates over the future of US health care coverage.
