Colleen Carey, PhD
Policy Analysis and Management
What I would like to offer as a collaborator…
An economist by training, my research focuses on the industrial organization of health care, with special attention to federal regulation of health insurance markets. My research informs the design of publicly-subsidized health insurance markets such as the Affordable Care Act marketplaces. I am particularly interested in the success of federal regulations, such as reinsurance and risk adjustment, in neutralizing adverse selection in these markets. In other research, I have studied how the financial relationships between physicians and drug firms affect prescribing behavior, and the success of state policies that aim to interdict prescription opioid abuse.
