Anticipating the direction private insurance would take after the retrenchment of managed care was perhaps the greatest challenge facing policymakers at the time these articles were published. A number of important trends are examined in the following articles:

  1. “Renewed Emphasis on Consumer Cost Sharing in Health Insurance Benefit Design” by James Robinson (March 2002);
  2. “Health Care Use among Undocumented Latino Immigrants” by Marc Berk, Claudia Schur, Leo Chavez, and Martin Frankel (July/August 2000);
  3. “The Nonpoor Uninsured in California, 1998” by Jill Yegian, David Pockell, Mark Smith, and Eleanor Murray (July/August 2000);
  4. “The Health Insurance Plan of California: The First Five Years” by Jill Yegian, Thomas Buchmueller, Mark Smith, and Ann Monroe (September/October 2000);
  5. “Small Businesses, Information, and the Decision to Offer Health Insurance” by Marian Mulkey and Jill Yegian (September/October 2001).
