Health Care Exchanges: New Recommendations for States
Read about a new legislative toolkit that will assist states with the design of health insurance exchanges, a key component of the Affordable Care Act. Senior fellow Deborah Chollet co-chaired an expert panel convened by the National Academy of Social Insurance to develop the toolkit, which presents an array of state legislative options and raises critical issues to consider in building successful exchanges. Chollet also co-chaired a webinar on designing health insurance exchanges.
Patient-Centered Medical Home Research Methods Series
New briefs, part of a series from the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality, expand awareness of methods to evaluate and refine PCMH models and other health care interventions. Evaluators and implementers can use also these briefs to meet evidence needs of stakeholders more effectively. Each brief describes a method, outlines advantages and limitations, and provides resources for researchers to learn more.
