Section 1332 waivers empower states to think creatively about how they can deliver quality and affordable health coverage to their populations. As new state leaders take office, time will be ripe for states to consider how to best use waivers to bring greater choice and stability to their markets.  New federal criteria gives states even greater flexibility in how they can use the waivers, some states have already found success in using 1332 waivers to stand up a reinsurance program, lowering premiums and maintain choice in their markets.

In this webinar, we dive into key questions for states as they consider development of a reinsurance program. A state panel, including officials from Maryland, shares lessons learned in applying for and implementing 1332 waivers for reinsurance. In addition, experts from Oliver Wyman share a new tool to help states evaluate financial implications and opportunities using federal pass-through funding under a Section 1332 reinsurance waiver.
