Connectors: What are they and what aren't they?

This session introduced the idea of Connectors. What do you need to think about in designing Connectors and what problems are you trying to solve? Why did Massachusetts include a Connector in the health reform plan and what is the functionality envisioned for the Connector?

Connectors, Exchanges, and Employee Choice Pools

Connectors can be designed in many different ways depending on the goal of state policy makers. This session highlighted three models: (a) The District of Columbia Equal Access Act; (b) The Massachusetts Connector; and (c) The Connecticut Business & Industry Association (CBIA) Health Connections pool.
