Progress Report on State Health Access Reform

Progress Report on State Health Access Reform

January 29, 2008

My Community Catalyst colleagues, Michael Miller & Christine Barber, and I provide a "Progress Report on State Health Access Reform" as a Health Affairs web exclusive out for release today. We found that 39 states had enacted laws in 2006 and 2007 to expand coverage for uninsured persons; 13 states have tried to do comprehensive reforms in addition to Massachusetts and Vermont -- none have yet to succeed.
