To be successful pre 2014 , coverage expansion effort that help develop coverage constructs for 2014 often will need to leverage limited state and local funds in ways that parlay other financing sources. Potentially, these funds might include federal funds, state funds, federal tax subsidies, local funds, tobacco tax settlement funds, and contributions from the enrollees and their employers.
At the Institute for Health Policy Solutions, we can help to develop workable ways to leverage multiple funding. For example, this might mean coverage strategies to reach uninsured small-firm workers and families. Such approaches can be designed to develop rather than undermine the sense of individual and mutual responsibilities essential to successful implementation of coverage expansion under federal reforms in 2014
