From the summary:
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) gave states a number of choices in how to implement the broad coverage changes it required. As such, health reform looks different from state to state, and the impact of the ACA may or may not differ because of these state decisions. This brief examines a number of choices related to the establishment and running of the new health insurance marketplaces, and their potential impact on enrollment rates to date. The brief uses existing data sources as well as a new database, HIX 2.0, which provides a rich array of state-level variables to give an ongoing picture of ACA implementation.
