Rose Feinberg studies issues related to health care coverage and access for at-risk populations. With an academic background in maternal and child health, she uses qualitative and quantitative methodologies to explore eligibility, access, service utilization, and care coordination primarily within state Medicaid programs. Her work often centers on the intersection of the health care and criminal justice systems, and on strategies for improving access to health services for low-income, uninsured, and marginalized populations.
Ms. Feinberg joined RTI in 2014 as a member of our program on Health Coverage for Low-Income and Uninsured Populations. She recently led a study exploring barriers to Medicare and Medicaid enrollment for older individuals who are reentering their communities after being incarcerated in prisons and jails.
