Digital Press Coverage of Health Plans and Correlations with Transfers Between Plans
The Objectives of the study were: 1. Examine how the health plans are covered in the digital press, and whether there are any differences between them in key aspects of that coverage 2. Examine whether there is a relationship between the mention of a certain health plan in a report and its tone 3. Examine whether there is a relationship between transfer rates and the scope and tone of media coverage of transfer rates, with emphasis on termination rates, and in particular, whether the scope of coverage and the overall tone of the reports can explain trends in these transitions.
