Natalia Serna Stanford Health Policy

Natalia Serna is an economist with an interest in health economics and industrial organization. Her research agenda broadly examines the impact of government policies and insurance market structure on access to care through hospital networks, health outcomes, and health-care costs. Specifically, her research shows that health insurers engage in risk selection by providing narrow hospital networks for services that most patients tend to claim. Serna’s research shows that strong competition between private insurers is needed to achieve appropriate access to health services to avoid insurance monopolies.
