1) Students will select a state health policy reform innovation and
2) describe the rationale, how it was adopted (e.g., federal waivers, passage by state legislature),
3) the funding structure (How money is spent)
4) its impact (to the extent statistical data are available)
Students should summarize their findings in a 1-2 page, single-spaced Memo (Research how to write (format) a memo).
A few examples of state innovations include Vermont’s single payer system, Massachusetts’ health
reforms and Kentucky’s Medicaid healthcare program.
(None of these can be used).
