Health Benefit Plan Contracting: A Background Paper Presentation
September 19, 2011
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires states to either establish and operate a Health Insurance Exchange by 2014 or participate in the federal Exchange. On April 12, 2011, Governor O’Malley signed the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange Act of 2011, which established Maryland’s Exchange as an independent unit of the state government. The Act also established a Board of Trustees to oversee the Exchange. The Hilltop Institute was commissioned to develop a series of background papers in order to assist the Board in planning for the implementation of Maryland’s Exchange.
This presentation, delivered by Senior Policy Analyst Martha Somerville, JD, MPH, discusses the background paper on health benefit plan contracting.
