The Center for Health Policy Studies conducts thorough policy analyses and develops major policy prescriptions to expand health insurance coverage, make health insurance portable and affordable, restore the traditional doctor–patient relationship, and improve the quality of care.
Our vision is clear: The people of the United States should enjoy the world’s best health care, taking advantage of the fruits of America’s leadership in medical science and technology and the indisputable excellence of America’s physicians and other medical professionals.
Center for Health Policy Studies analysts are often called upon to provide congressional testimony, giving federal lawmakers their considered judgment on health policy problems while offering policy alternatives that expand the personal freedom of individuals and families and reinforce the importance of the traditional doctor–patient relationship. Strong champions of federalism, Center analysts also provide state legislative testimony and, at the request of governors, help state policymakers to undertake reform of state health insurance markets and craft innovative approaches to expand coverage for the uninsured.
Building on significant research compiled over the past several years, the Center for Health Policy Studies continues to sponsor original research by both in-house and outside scholars. Working closely with all Heritage departments, the Center hosts and participates in conferences for policymakers, policy experts, journalists, and researchers to discuss the implications of the latest health policy research findings.
