Trish Awarded $3.6 Million Grant

Erin Trish, PhD is principal investigator on a $3.6 million project that will study five interrelated areas to inform the policy debate around provider prices and the growing cost of healthcare.

Funded by Arnold Ventures, the research will explore surprise medical billing, physician consolidation, provider price differentials across market segments, out-of-pocket spending trends and assessment of policies to reduce provider prices. The investigations aim to improve understanding of the drivers of these high and rising prices, as well as the impact of potential alternative policy approaches to addressing them.

Trish is associate director of the USC Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics and an assistant professor of pharmaceutical and health economics at the USC School of Pharmacy.
