About me

Eliza Navarro
Bangit, J.D., is a Senior Research Associate and lawyer at Georgetown University's
Health Policy Institute.  Her research
focuses on federal and state laws governing the private insurance market, with
a focus on access, affordability and adequacy of coverage.  Other areas of focus include the examination
of state initiatives in covering the uninsured including state high-risk pool
programs, subsidies for private health insurance coverage and small employer
tax credits, the regulation of association health plans and multiple employer
arrangements, and the proliferation of fraudulent health insurance coverage
promoted through associations.


Prior to
joining the Institute, Ms. Bangit served as Program Associate at the Institute
for Health Policy Solutions, where she conducted a wide array of data research
and analysis involving employer-based health insurance coverage and initiatives
to expand health insurance coverage to children and families. She also provided
assistance and established collaborative relationships with numerous sites and
organizations developing consumer-choice purchasing alliances and cooperatives.


Ms. Bangit
received her J.D. from the University of the District of Columbia David A.
Clarke School of Law, and her M.A. and B.A. from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland.
