The Oregon Health Insurance Experiment is the first study ever to measure the effects of health insurance by randomly assigning subjects to receive Medicaid coverage or no coverage. At this forum, lead investigator Katherine Baicker will present the Oregon Health Insurance Experiment's first set of results and discuss further data that this revolutionary experiment will produce. The panelists will comment on the study's results and what the Oregon Health Insurance Experiment means for medicine, Medicaid, and health care reform.
