Dr. Skinner's research interests are the determinants of health care spending and outcomes among different income groups in the Medicare population. He is currently studying how high and low income groups are treated differently for heart attacks and to what extent the better survival outcomes for high income groups are the consequence of different treatment patterns. He has also studied redistributional effects of the Medicare system and the time-series pattern of catastrophic out-of-pocket expenditures. Related research in economics focuses on why households save and why so many households save virtually nothing for their retirement.
