Research Summary:
Dr. Gordon's research evaluates policies that impact low-income populations, with a particular focus on health insurance and access to care. In her recent work, she has applied econometric and causal inference-based methods to assess the impacts of state-level health care policies. She has experience merging and analyzing multiple state all payer claims databases to conduct cross-state comparisons. She utilized these datasets to examine the impact of the Affordable Care Act's insurance expansions on continuity of coverage and healthcare utilization and the impact of out-of-pocket costs on coverage retention in state Marketplaces. More recently, she has investigated how Medicaid policies affect continuity of care during the perinatal period among low-income women. Her broad interests are in vulnerable populations, health equity, and access to care. Dr. Gordon is the recipient of the Health Policy Scholars Program and Alice S. Hersh Student Scholarship from AcademyHealth, a Dissertation Award from the Agency for Healthcare Research (R36) and the Public Health Impact and Nora Kahn Piore Award from Brown University.
