Health Insurance Alignment Project - Making Sense of Health Insurance Oversight in California

Following up on the 2011 California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) report, “Ready for Reform? Health Insurance Regulation in California under the ACA,” the Health Insurance Alignment Project supported effective state implementation of ACA health insurance market reforms and improved health insurance oversight and coordination in California.

Through a CHCF grant to the Kelch Policy Group, from 2012 to 2015, the Health Insurance Alignment Project provided policy research, analysis and strategic assistance to advance the goals of reducing duplication, improving transparency and maximizing consumer protections in health insurance oversight in California

Specifically, the objectives of the Health Insurance Alignment Project were to:

  • Advance ACA health insurance market reforms by providing California-specific analysis and offering technical assistance and process facilitation to key decision makers and staff;
  • Improve coordination and accountability of health insurance oversight through analysis and commentary, highlighting state challenges and opportunities related to health insurance oversight; and
  • Engage in a process and develop a framework for assessing long-term progress toward implementation of ACA market reforms and effective health insurance oversight in California.
