Welcome to the State Legislative Tracking Databases on Health Reform!
NCSL has just launched a new 2014 Health Reform State Legislative Database. Go directly to the online 2014 Database report, established March 2014 and updated every two weeks.
Both databases include legislation, including pending, failed and enacted bills and resolutions. The database is intended to capture state actions related to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care Education and Reconciliation Act, together referred to as the Affordable Care Act or federal health reform. Topics relate to some of the major provisions in the Affordable Care Act and include Medicaid, Access to Primary Care, Health Insurance Exchanges, Essential Health Benefits, Health Insurance Reform, Health Information Technology, Prevention and Wellness, Community Health Centers and Providers and Workforce. A separate topic, Challenges and Alternatives, covers policies that differ from the federal provisions.
