Published On July 10, 2023

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 2023 legislative session reveals three key themes emerging for state health policy reforms: 

  1. States Advanced Policies that Reign In Health Care Prices for Everyday People
  2. As Consumers Faced Threats to their Health Care, States Stepped in to Protect Access to Coverage
  3. States Sought Out Opportunities to Innovate and Improve Access to Affordable Health Coverage

From recent state action to protect cost-free preventive services amid the Braidwood v. Becerra court decision, action in several states to expand access to affordable coverage through innovative state based solutions, and states continuing to expand Medicaid postpartum access, our 2023 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 forward to 2024.
