As one key piece of the Affordable Care Act, at least fifty health insurance exchanges will be implemented in the states. To a large extent, the success of the Affordable Care Act’s primary goal of expanding health insurance coverage will depend on the ability of these exchanges to increase access for small businesses and the self-insured and to deliver tax credits to the appropriate populations. Yet the exchanges are perhaps the least well-understood piece of the ACA, and their design and implementation on a national level represents an ambitious and large-scale regulatory experiment.
The workshop will bring together academic, policy makers, and advocates to facilitate the discussion of several important sets of questions related to the implementation of the exchanges.
