As federal health reform legislation has stalled, health policy attention turns to the states, which have many tools to reform their health care systems.

Webinar: Health Savings Accounts: State Considerations for HSAs
Health Savings Accounts have been a frequent topic of conversation for policy options in the ACA markets. HSAs have gained attention in recent years as they are featured in both “Repeal & Replace” and Medicaid proposals. Given the interest in this plan, the State Network hosted a webinar for state officials featuring the experts at Manatt Health. This webinar reviewed the basics of HSAs, how they have been considered under various repeal and replace proposals, and how alternative Medicaid expansions have used HSA-like programs for enrollees. Slides from the webinar are available below.
