Stable Health Insurance Markets: Maintenance and Alternative Methods

The Association for Community Affiliated Plans (ACAP) issued a report which examines possible alternatives to the individual mandate for health insurance coverage brought about by the Affordable Care Act and evaluates their cost and efficacy.

Insurance Markets Stabilization: Bipartisan Proposal From Governors

The governors John Kasich of Ohio, John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, Bill Walker of Alaska, Terence R.

The letter was sent ahead of the testimony governors are expected to offer to the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions committee on September 7.
