This joint meeting, hosted by the State Network and Medicaid Leadership Institute, was held in Boston, MA on April 23-24, 2012. The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) led sessions that ranged from continuity of care during coverage transition to methods for integrated care and reimbursement.
This State Milestones document, prepared by Manatt Health Solutions, identifies critical Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation milestones states are striving to achieve by the end of 2012.
This document, produced by Wakely Consulting, is intended to provide a high level overview of the business functions that must be established, the type of work that must be undertaken, and a relative timeline and chronological order for establishing the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange.
Parallel with the release of the issue brief of the same name, Ross Winkelman and colleagues from Wakely Consulting led a webinar explaining what decisions states need to make over the next two years to ensure a robust risk adjustment and reinsurance program.
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) much of the expanded coverage will be provided through health insurers offering products on the new health insurance exchanges. To ensure robust markets, exchanges must have in place processes for mitigating the financial risk to insurers associated with enrolling individuals with diverse health care needs.
