State Health Reform; Insurance; Health Reform
The alignment of Medicaid and State Health Insurance Exchange (Exchange) policy and practice is a basic tenet of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Through both legislative provisions and implementing regulations, the ACA addresses this relationship. At the same time, the federal framework provides states with considerable discretion to flesh out the fuller dimensions of system interaction.
