Research

 

Tom Buchmueller is a health economist who is an expert on the economics of health insurance and related public policies. He has done extensive research on the link between health insurance and the labor market in the U.S., consumer demand for health insurance, the interaction between public policies and private insurance markets, and health care reform. In addition to his research on U.S. policy topics, he has published studies on the economics of health insurance in France, Australia and the Netherlands. Much of his recent research focuses on health care reform in the U.S., with a particular emphasis on the effect of the Affordable Care Act’s insurance coverage expansions on patients and provider organizations.

Professor Buchmueller also holds an appointment in Department of Health Management and Policy in the School of Public Health and is on the Institutional Leadership Team of the University’s Institute of Health Policy and Innovation. He is a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research and an elected member of the Board of Directors of the American Society of Health Economists. In 2011-12, he served as the Senior Health Economist at the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Prior to joining the Ross School in 2006, Buchmueller was a Professor at the University of California-Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business. Other prior academic appointments include: Professeur Invité at the University of Bordeaux (2015-16), Packer Policy Fellow at the University of Technology Sydney’s Centre for Health Economic Research and Evaluation (2006-2007), Visiting Scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (2005-2006), and Visiting Research Scholar at INSEAD (2001-02).
