About this section

The Schaeffer Center's health policy simulation work - in conjunction with Schaeffer's Roybal Center for Health Policy Simulation - has set the gold standard for researchers to effectively model future trends in health and longevity. Its pioneering Future Elderly Model (FEM) surfaces trends in health, functional status, spending, innovation, labor supply, and earnings, allowing researchers to reliably answer the "what if" questions facing decision makers as they navigate the critical challenges of coming decades.
