Health Insurance Literacy

The American Institutes for Research (AIR) has completed development and validation of the Health Insurance Literacy Measure (HILM). The HILM, which is publicly available, can help identify what aspects of health insurance pose the greatest problems for consumers, which groups need more assistance to enroll and use benefits, and what topics and skills consumer counseling-efforts should focus on.
