• An Overview of ACA Provisions and Their Repeal Implications for States

    Much has been written about the impact of ACA repeal on consumers and health insurance markets. With this chart NASHP provides an overview of ACA provisions and snapshot of the implications to states if the ACA is repealed. States are the primary regulator of insurance and as such had laws in place prior to the enactment of ACA. Some states repealed those laws and replaced them with ACA provisions, while other states revised their laws but left other old, preempted laws on the books. Sorting through these laws and regulations to have a coherent system of insurance regulation after an ACA repeal will be a complex undertaking in every state.
