States are responsible for on-the-ground implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including expanding coverage options through Exchanges, Medicaid and other health insurance programs. This webinar considers different ways policymakers define affordability and draws on lessons from the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which can serve as a model for states as they implement affordability provisions in ACA. It also looks at the impact on families when coverage is not affordable and considerations for families in purchasing decisions.
