Health Care Waivers: 1332-State Relief and Empowerment Waivers Webinar

This webinar provides an overview of recent proposals made by the administration regarding changes to 1332 waivers, now referred to as State Relief and Empowerment Waivers, which can be used to modify key parts of the Affordable Care Act. Join NCSL and policy experts for a discussion on how these waivers are intended to help state marketplaces and increase consumers’ access to coverage at a reasonable cost.

NCSL hosted this webinar in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Service, The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services and The Center for Consumer Information & Insurance Oversight (CCIIO).
