HPIO releases two new publications that explore impact of ACA
The Health Policy Institute has released two new publications that explore the impact of the Affordable Care Act in the state.
The first publication, titled “Ohio and the ACA: A closer look at health insurance marketplace premiums and enrollment,” details changes to private health insurance that came about as the result of the passage of the ACA.
After two marketplace open enrollment periods, Ohio has experienced relatively low enrollment compared to other states and its post-subsidy premiums are among the highest of states that opted to have the federal government run their exchange.
The brief explores reasons for these dynamics and offers a menu of policy considerations to address the issues.
The Health Policy Institute of Ohio also is releasing a report detailing implementation of the ACA in the state.
The report is part of a series of 25 state and regional studies commissioned by the ACA Implementation Research Network examining the rollout of the ACA over the past 5 years. The national Research Network -- with 36 states and 61 researchers -- is led by the Rockefeller Institute of Government, the public policy research arm of the State University of New York, the Brookings Institution, and the Fels Institute of Government at the University of Pennsylvania.
