Considerations for a State Health Insurer Fee Following Repeal of the Federal 9010 Fee
The recent repeal of the federal health insurer fee may create an opportunity for states to secure funding to support health coverage, without increasing costs on consumers or the health care industry.
Enacting a fee to replace the federal one presents several design questions for states, including what lines of insurance to include, timing, rate, and targeted exemptions. Frequent SHVS partner and ACA tax expert Jason Levitis prepared slides to help states understand these issues. For states interested in learning more, SHVS is happy to make Jason available to provide technical assistance. If you have questions or are interested in assistance, contact Jason directly at email@example.com.

As evidence of Medicaid expansion’s positive fiscal impact continues to mount across the country, the ability to identify and allocate state general fund dollars “saved” through expansion matters now more than ever. This presentation by Manatt Health reviews the most recent findings on the economic impacts of Medicaid expansion, discusses how state can refine estimates of enrollment, savings, and other expansion impacts, and addresses how states are using information on economic impacts to demonstrate the value of expansion.
Social Media Insights, Best Practices, and Tips for OEP3 and Beyond
As health insurance exchanges approach the third open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), social media platforms continue to represent vital channels through which exchanges can reach consumers.

This slide deck, prepared by GMMB, provides an overview of several social media channels, as well as key insights and tips for making sure that exchanges are utilizing them as effectively as possible.
