Improve Access to Care

Achieve meaningful advances in access to coverage for millions of individuals along with greater stability, affordability and choice in health care, and fit within a state-based markets approach by:

  • Establishing State-Based Public and Private Market Solutions. State-based health care markets are a coherently organized portfolio of public and private benefit coverage platforms dedicated to appropriately achieving targeted coverage, quality and fiscal goals.
  • Providing States Flexibility to Design Cost-Effective Coverage Solutions. Return oversight of private insurance markets to states and allow insurers to offer innovative, cost-effective products that harmonize with states' other benefit coverage platforms.
  • Revitalizing the Private Individual Market. Stabilize access to coverage and improve affordability by restoring consumer access and choice.
  • Strengthening and Growing Employer-Sponsored Insurance. Support the current tax treatment of ESI; expand access to, and incentives for, health savings accounts; and allow ERISA-like flexibility for all employers to tailor employee incentives and wellness programs.
