Hannah Neprash, PhD

Associate Professor, Division of Health Policy & Management


PhD, Health Policy (Economics Track), Harvard University, 2017
BA, Economics, Government, Oberlin College, 2007


I study health economics, focusing on how health care providers respond to financial and non-financial incentives. My research uses novel sources of data to examine how physician decision-making drives utilization, spending, access, and quality in health care. I am particularly interested in research questions that will inform evidence-based policy during a time of rapid transformation in health care payment and delivery systems. 

In addition to my academic career, I have experience in federal and state health policy – including time at the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), the Health Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways & Means Committee, and the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission.


Health economics, health policy, quasi-experimental methods, public insurance programs, physician behavior, payment and delivery system reform.
