The Commonwealth Fund recently commissioned analysts with the RAND Corporation to crunch the numbers and find out how some of the candidates’ proposals would affect health care in the U.S. You can now learn all about the findings in two new Commonwealth Fund reports, our online comparison tool, and a summary on the Fund’s To the Point blog.

In modeling the candidates’ proposals, RAND’s Christine Eibner and her team found that Clinton’s would increase the number of people with health coverage, while Trump’s would decrease the number. The analyses also show lower out-of-pocket costs for consumers under the Clinton plan and higher out-of-pocket costs under the Trump plan.
