Webinar: Health insurance auto-enrollment

A joint event from the USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy and the American Enterprise Institute

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, 30 million Americans were uninsured, but half of this population is eligible for insurance coverage through Medicaid or for financial assistance to buy coverage on the health insurance marketplace. Auto-enrollment is a method by which individuals are placed automatically into the health insurance coverage they are qualified for, and it has received support across the political spectrum.

On May 18, the USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy, in partnership with the American Enterprise Institute, hosted a webinar discussing pathways to auto-enrollment that can help expand health insurance coverage. These strategies are likely to be even more necessary as the ranks of the uninsured increase as the economy contracts.
