The latest webinar in our “Capitol Forum: Meet the Experts” series provides an inside look at the Health Insurance Simulation Model (HISIM) and how it is being updated.

Speakers—Jessica Banthin, deputy assistant director of the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) Health, Retirement, and Long-Term Analysis Division, and Alexandra Minicozzi, unit chief of health insurance modeling for the division—provide an overview of HISIM, which is used to generate estimates of health insurance coverage and premiums for the U.S. population under age 65. CBO analysts use the model to develop baseline projections and to simulate the effects of proposed changes to policies involving health insurance coverage.

Banthin and Minicozzi explain how HISIM is being used to estimate the cost of proposals affecting health insurance coverage and how updates to the model will enhance CBO’s analytic capabilities.
