New NASHP report: Health Care Reform and Children: Planning and Design Considerations for Policymakers

0 Comments | Posted

The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) is out with a new report focusing on children's coverage as part of the ACA.

Several of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) key provisions are targeted to children, but much of the law focuses on covering the larger uninsured population, primarily adults without dependent children. As states focus on implementing new ACA coverage programs and other systemic changes by January 1, 2014, it will be important that children’s coverage remains a priority as well. This report, prepared with the support of The Atlantic Philanthropies, explains some of the challenges and opportunities for making health care reform work for children.
