States play a significant role in health reform implementation as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Some components of the law must be developed and implemented quickly, while other will involve a complex set of state decisions and long-term planning and implementation. Governors and other state officials need clear information, guidance and tools to determine the best course for their state.
This website is intended to be a central resource for state leaders about health reform implementation. In addition to NGA and Consortium publications, all relevant guidance from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as priority publications from other organizations, is included on this site.
