Strategic Consulting for Consumer Advocates

Affordable Care Act Implementation Guidance for State Advocates

We work with patient and consumer groups to develop materials that will help their state and national advocates understand key decisions and actions that states must take to prepare for full implementation of the ACA. We also help them identify opportunities for consumer advocacy at the state level and provide technical assistance to support their efforts. Our work with patient and consumer groups has included:

  • Primers on health insurance reform topics
  • Webinars on major provisions of the ACA, including insurance reforms, health insurance exchanges
  • Updates on state action to implement the ACA, including state action on essential health benefits
  • Summaries of federal rules for ACA implementation
  • Strategic plans for targeted state advocacy
