October 28, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research is hosting a seminar at 12 p.m. on Thursday, October 28, as part of its Brown Bag Seminar Series.

“Evaluating the Impact of Medicaid Waiver Policies on Safety Net and Disabled Populations”

Presented by Sujoy Chakravarty, Rutgers Center for State Health Policy

Sujoy Chakravarty is an associate research professor and health economist at the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy, where his primary emphasis is on health economics and policy. His research examines the impact of state and federal policies relating to health care delivery and financing on patient access, efficiency, and quality of care. He also studies hospital markets, focusing on the impact of changes in market structure, competition policy, and ownership mix on provider behavior and patient care. His recent research includes identifying hospital utilization patterns that indicate gaps in patient care and how such findings may inform the implementation of the New Jersey Medicaid ACO Demonstration program; examining the effect of Medicare Part D prescription drug policy on coverage and access with focus on racial disparities in access; and assessing and evaluating care management initiatives for patients with complex conditions who have high hospital utilization. He is also leading the evaluation of the ongoing New Jersey Comprehensive Waiver Demonstration that introduces significant changes in delivery of behavioral health services, long-term services and supports, and hospital payment structure aimed at improving patient care and population health.
