State policy experimentation likely to create uncertainty for providers in 2019
from Modern Healthcare
The coming year will be one of state health policy experimentation that could lead to even wider healthcare disparities across the country. States already vary widely in their uninsured rates, ranging from 2.8 percent in Massachusetts to 17.3 percent in Texas in 2017, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. With Congress likely deadlocked for the next two years between the Democratic-controlled House and the Republican-controlled Senate, states will be where any major health policy action takes place. Providers, health plans and consumers could face sharply different fates in different states.
