Health Insurance Exchanges: Past, Present and Future

2012 National Conference

CSG Health Policy Task Force
What's Next for Health Exchanges?
December 1, 2012

As the political dust surrounding health care reform settles, states are getting down to the business of establishing health insurance exchanges. Participants learned more about key health insurance exchanges issues in the 2013 legislative sessions. This workshop examined exchange planning and implementation efforts—looking at issues for both state-based and federally facilitated approaches, including partnerships. The panel focused on topics such as governance, regulatory oversight and financing, as well as general exchange policy.
