The Affordable Care Act (ACA) expands health coverage under Medicaid, creates subsidies for private coverage through the Health Benefits Exchange, and mandates that individuals have health insurance coverage. To accomplish these goals, the ACA presents states with a vision for a modern, streamlined, and seamless system that integrates Medicaid, CHIP, and Exchange eligibility screening and enrollment.

CHCF recently commissioned the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) to identify the opportunities for states in implementing these ACA enrollment provisions.

In this Sacramento health policy briefing, NASHP will present the ACA’s vision for modern, streamlined eligibility and enrollment systems in a post-health reform environment, and discuss potential challenges and options as states modernize and integrate enrollment systems consistent with recent federal guidance. The panel will discuss ACA and enrollment provisions in a California context.

This should be a great discussion. If you’d like to attend, be sure to register!
