Health Disability Topics

Health and Access to Care

Workers’ ability to engage productively in the labor force and society depends on their ability to manage potentially complex challenges in health and functioning.

Access to medical care and the ability to afford that care are critically important for maintaining and improving health. At the same time, the health care needs of people of all ages change as the incidence of disease and chronic conditions change, along with changes in medicine and technology. Our work in this area documents the health and functional status of children and adults with disabilities, across vulnerable subgroups and time. We also study the relationship between employment and health insurance and their effects on accessing care and seeking federal disability benefits. Our researchers have documented the effects of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010—which dramatically changed the availability of health insurance—on insurance coverage, access to care, work, and benefit application and receipt among youth and working-age adults with disabilities.

Related to our disability work, Mathematica also has expertise in the following areas:
