Roger Feldman is the Blue Cross Professor of Health Insurance and Professor of Economics. Dr. Feldman was a Marshall Scholar at the London School of Economics and holds a PhD in economics from the University of Rochester. His research covers the organization, financing, and delivery of health care with a focus on health insurance. He also studies competition among health care providers and insurers. Currently, he is evaluating the effect of consumer-directed health plans on medical care costs and the use of preventive services. Dr. Feldman’s experience in health care policy includes serving on the Senior Staff of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers, where he was the lead author of a chapter in the 1985 Economic Report of the President. From 1988 to 1992, he directed one of the four national research centers sponsored by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). In the 1990s he advised CMS on a demonstration of competitive pricing for Medicare M+C plans and is currently evaluating a demonstration of competitive pricing for durable medical equipment. Dr. Feldman is a regular contributor to journals in economics and health services research. His research has received four “best paper” awards from the Association for Health Services Research and the National Institute of Health Care Management. He has been a consultant to the U.S. Department of Justice and several state agencies regarding health plan mergers and ownership changes.
