American Journal of Health Economics

The American Journal of Health Economics (AJHE) was launched in 2015 to provide a forum for in-depth analysis of institutional health care systems and individual health behaviors. The journal welcomes high quality review of topics, both theoretical and applied, which cannot be examined as fully by general economics publications.

The articles appearing in AJHE are authored by scholars from universities, private research organizations, government, and industry. Subjects of interest include competition between private health insurance providers, the impact of the Affordable Care Act, pharmaceutical regulation, medical device supply, the rise of obesity, the influence and growth of aging populations, and much more.

All ASHEcon members receive the journal as part of their membership. There are no fees for submission to the journal.
