SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Leavitt Partners released the "State-Based Health Care Innovation: What Flexibility Exists Under Section 1115 and 1332 Waiver Opportunities?" white paper, which examines the future of waiver-based health care reform under a new administration. The assessment can help states understand state-based reform in the context of a new federal administration.
Federal health care policy is continually evolving and is further impacted by the uncertainty that accompanies a new administration. However, states still have an opportunity to create unique, state-specific solutions through the waiver process. Leavitt Partners has combined information from long-term waiver tracking and analysis of the current legislative political climate to identify patterns and make projections on what flexibility states can expect going forward. Notable findings from the assessment include:
- Waivers allow states to disregard or reform many substantive provisions of the Social Security Act and the Affordable Care Act.
- Waivers give states greater control over budgetary measures and implementation timelines.
- Under a Republican presidency and Congress, states may see increased flexibility to adapt federal policies, and more conservative waiver plans that have been denied in the past could be approved.
