Health Policy Institute (HPI)
- Homepage: http://ihcrp.georgetown.edu/
March 2008: "The Health Policy Institute is a multi-disciplinary group of faculty and staff dedicated to conducting research on key issues in health policy and health services research. Institute members are engaged in a wide diversity of projects, focusing on issues relating to health care financing, the uninsured, federal health insurance reforms, quality of care and outcomes research, mental health services research, and the impact of changes in the health care market on providers and patients.
The products of the research carried out by Institute faculty are disseminated through a variety of mechanisms. Taking advantage of our location in the nation's capital, Institute faculty often present their findings to federal policy makers. This may take the form of formal presentations, such as providing expert testimony at Congressional hearings, or informal briefings and meetings with Congressional and Executive branch leaders. Institute research findings also are disseminated through special publications by sponsoring foundations, in books, and in academic journals."http://ihcrp.georgetown.edu/
October 2007: 'Jocelyn A. Guyer, a researcher at the Health Policy Institute of Georgetown University, said: “This is a wildly contentious political issue, but it’s largely a theoretical question. More than 99 percent of children in the program are below three times the poverty level, and New York is the only state that has expressed any interest in going to four times the poverty level.”'http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/17/washington/17health.html

QUOTE: Countries rich and poor struggle with how best to provide affordable health care to their citizens without breaking the bank. In places like the Czech Republic, there is a sense of betrayal, because the state long took care of them, but also a justified fear for those left behind in the recent years of growth and change.

New York Times Oct 17, 2007 Children’s Health Bill Dispute Turns to Income Limits
QUOTE: When the House votes Thursday on whether to override the veto, Republicans will insist that the answer is yes. They will express outrage that rich children could get coverage from the government while hundreds of thousands of poor children still go uninsured. Democrats say it is a total distortion for Mr. Bush and his Republican allies to say that the bill allows coverage with family incomes up to $83,000 a year.
