Analysis of the State Health Insurance Exchange Regulations

Several recent posts on The Commonwealth Fund Blog looked at the new state health insurance exchange regulations. In her two-part series highlighting select aspects of the exchange rule, The Commonwealth Fund's Sara Collins, Ph.D., says it provides states maximum flexibility, within the boundaries established by the health reform law, to tailor the exchanges to their particular insurance markets, employer communities, and populations. In another post, Mark Hall of Wake Forest University examines a companion rule that addresses risk adjustment, a necessity for ensuring a level playing field in individual and small-group markets both within and outside the exchanges.

Sara Collins and Tracey Garber also updated their blog post and map showing where states stand in establishing the legal authority for their insurance exchanges. Also available is a link to all Commonwealth Fund resources on the exchanges.
