State Health Exchange Leadership Network

Since passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), state staff has worked diligently to provide affordable, high-quality coverage to consumers through the health insurance marketplaces. The State Health Exchange Leadership Network, informally known as Exchangers, is a project run by the National Academy for State Health Policy which provides a platform for health insurance marketplaces state staff and leaders to participate in peer-to-peer dialogue, discuss emerging issues, and share best practices.

Our priorities include:

•  To provide federal stakeholders and policymakers with information regarding the implications of federal policy on health insurance marketplaces.
•  To support tactical peer-to-peer interaction on areas of common interest or need.
•  To assist states in preparation for future policy and other issues (e.g expansion of SHOP, sustainability).
