US Healthcare Think-Tanks

Below are lists of DC-based think tanks that have commented extensively on healthcare.

I’ve tried to give you some that are viewed “inside the beltway” as “conservative”, “liberal”, and some that are more prone to examine the issues from a fiscal/budgetary/libertarian perspective.

“Conservative” – Heritage, AEI, Heartland

“Liberal” – Brookings, CAP, KFF

“Fiscal/Libertarian” – Cato, Concord
