What's New In Health Affairs
In her latest Eye On Health Reform column, published online this week,
Katie Keith discusses the rising enrollment in the Affordable Care Act
and the Biden administration's call for permanent extensions of
premium tax credits and other enhancements that are part of the American
Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
On Health Affairs Blog, Keith analyzed Thursday's Supreme Court decision
in California v. Texas rejecting a challenge to the ACA.
Ariel Dora Stern and coauthors investigated biosimilars on the market
and found that lower biosimilar product prices help offset increases in
average annual reference-product prices.
Stern also appeared on this week's episode of A Health Podyssey
to discuss this research.
June is Gun Violence Awareness Month. In a new article, Sarah James and
coauthors analyzed data about adolescents in communities with a deadly
gun violence incident
in the past year and found that "only 4 percent of White adolescents
resided or attended school within 500 meters of a deadly gun violence
incident in the past year, versus 36 percent of Black adolescents and 29
percent of Hispanic adolescents."
How Biosimilars Are Affecting The Drug Markets
**Health Affairs** Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil interview Ariel Dora Stern
from Harvard Business School on what biosimilars are and how the
pharmaceutical market is evolving in response to their market entry.
