"The I.R.S. Sent a Letter to 3.9 Million People. It Saved Some of Their Lives" - New York Times. 12/10/2019.
"There has been a lot of skepticism, especially in economics, that health insurance has a mortality impact. It's really important that this is a randomized controlled trial. It's a really high standard of evidence that you can't just dismiss," said Sarah Miller, PSC Faculty Associate, and assistant professor of business economics and public policy, commenting on research that shows letters sent by the IRS suggesting ways to enroll in health coverage through the Affordable Care Act may have saved 700 lives among those who were fined for not previously carrying insurance.
