Myths about the Uninsured
March 9, 2004
U.S. House Subcommittee on Health
Len Nichols, a member of ERIU's research committee, testified before the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health at a hearing on the uninsured. His testimony draws on evidence from economics and health services research to debunk ten popular myths about the uninsured. The testimony was based on a prior presentation by Nichols and economist Mark Pauly, a member of ERIU's oversight committee, at a media event for the release of the book "Health Policy and the Uninsured."
