SCI-State Approaches to Health Benefit Exchange Legislation

Bookmark and Share

Many states are working to develop exchange authorizing legislation by the end of this legislative session. State Coverage Initiatives (SCI) hosted an opportunity to hear from three of those states: Maryland, Missouri, and Nevada. The presenters touched on their states’ proposed governance structure, board requirements and conflict of interest provisions, how they expect the exchange to handle procurement and hiring, and any potential policy issues that were addressed in the legislation. Presenters  also spoke about the process of getting legislation proposed and passed as well as their work with stakeholders and the public.
