New Report on State and Local Health Reform Innovations

November 20, 2006

Click here for a new report by New America Foundation health expert Cristy Gallagher surveying the health reform landscape at the state and local levels, highlighting the best and most innovative of the new approaches. The report, From New England to the Golden Gate Bridge: A Look at Creative Coverage Expansions at the State and Local Levels takes an in-depth look at the tools used to finance expansions and increase coverage afforability. From the much-heralded Massachusetts plan that offers near-universal coverage to less well-publicized reforms that subsidize small empoloyer health insurance in states from New Mexico to Tennessee, the approaches offer a blueprint for what a successful national reform could look like.
