Webinar: How Would a State Individual Mandate Work?: A Look at Massachusetts’s Experience

3 to 4 p.m. (EST) Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018

With effective repeal of the federal individual mandate scheduled for 2019, one option state policymakers are exploring to help stabilize their health insurance markets is to implement a state individual mandate. State executive and legislative branch officials are invited to a webinar with key state officials from Massachusetts to discuss the mechanics of their 10-year-old mandate, including administration, consumer relations, tax filing and compliance, penalty revenue and how it is used, reporting and governance, and lessons learned for their markets after a decade of operation. Register here.

In preparation for the webinar, NASHP is sharing model legislation to implement a state mandate, prepared by webinar speaker Jason Levitis, a senior fellow at the Yale Law School Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy and former counselor and Affordable Care Act implementation lead at the U.S. Treasury Department.

This webinar is open to state officials only. Email any questions you would like addressed to Christina Cousart at ccousart@nashp.org
