The Health Policy Institute of Ohio is releasing a report detailing implementation of the ACA in the state.
The report is part of a series of 25 state and regional studies commissioned by the ACA Implementation Research Network examining the rollout of the ACA over the past 5 years. The national Research Network -- with 36 states and 61 researchers -- is led by the Rockefeller Institute of Government, the public policy research arm of the State University of New York, the Brookings Institution, and the Fels Institute of Government at the University of Pennsylvania.
“HPIO is pleased to participate in the national study and give a detailed account of the policy landscape and key decisions that have been made in the state over the past five years,” said Amy Rohling McGee, HPIO President. “It is important that as we move forward with health policy, we have a strong understanding of how the law was implemented in our state.”
“The aim of the Rockefeller Institute's reports on state implementation of the Affordable Care Act is to capture the diversity of American federalism intrinsic to understanding how the law is going into effect across the country,” said Richard Nathan, senior fellow at the Rockefeller Institute and the creator of the national network. “The Ohio report by Amy Rohling McGee, Reem Aly and Stephanie Gilligan is the 25th report in this series. It captures the drama, politics and policy choices made for Ohio going all the way back to when the law was enacted in 2010. It is well done, timely, intriguing and revealing. We are proud to publish this report.”
