Division of Health Care Access and Coverage

The Division of Health Care Access and Coverage (HAC) is responsible for issues relevant to the Health Insurance Exchanges, the Medicaid and CHIP programs, and private health insurance reforms. A primary focus is affordable access to health care services via public or private health insurance coverage for a variety of population groups. HAC provides research, data analysis, and development of policies and mechanisms that integrate the financing and delivery of health care. Relevant topic areas include:

  • Health Insurance Exchange--coverage, enrollment and premium issues;
  • Medicaid and CHIP--access, coverage, payment, and financing;
  • Private health insurance issues affecting affordability, consumer choice, and coverage both inside and outside the Exchanges.
