Comparing health care bills

The RAND Corporation has issued analyses and a comparison of two bills in Congress on health care reform: H.R. 3590 (pdf, 2409pp), and H.R. 3962 (pdf, 2016pp). For the comparison, RAND used its COMPARE microsimulation model, conducted by RAND Health. Estimates of potential effects of each bill were made for coverage (of the uninsured), spending (by the federal government), consumer financial risk (health care spending), and alternate design choices and assumptions (how various provisions of the bills might result in changes in coverage and spending).
