United States of Care Highlights Recent Victories, Positive Trends in 2024 State Legislative Wrap Up Report

Published On June 26, 2024

With state legislative sessions coming to a close across the nation, USofCare is highlighting some of the major successes and exciting trends we’ve seen across the states recently. Our analysis of the 2024 legislative session reveals three key themes emerging for state health policy reforms: 

  1. States Advanced Policies that Promote Hospital Accountability
  2. States Prioritized Protecting and Expanding Access to Health Coverage
  3. States Sought Out Opportunities to Innovate and Improve Health Care Affordability for People

From recent state action to address the impact of hospital consolidation, action in several states to expand access to affordable coverage through innovative state based solutions, and states continuing to protect no-cost access to preventive services in light of the Braidwood v. Becerra decision, our 2024 State Legislative Wrap Up goes in-depth on how states are helping lead the charge to make health care more affordable, dependable, personalized, and understandable – and how advocates and policymakers can build on this success on the state and federal level as we look towards 2025.
