Marcus Dillender, PhD
Dr. Marcus Dillender is an assistant professor of health policy and administration. He is an economist whose research lies at the intersection of health, labor, and public economics. His broad research interests include occupational health and the medical treatment that injured workers receive, health insurance as a benefit for workers, and healthcare labor markets. His past research projects have characterized the effect of temperature on workers’ injury rates, shown how healthcare education and labor markets respond to Medicaid expansions, and evaluated the impact of prior authorization requirements on the prescription drugs and medical care that injured workers receive. In other projects, he has studied the impact of mandates that employers offer health insurance to full-time workers on part-time employment and considered how the ability to obtain employer-sponsored health insurance coverage through a family member affects labor force participation.
