What is next for health reform? If the U.S. Supreme Court rules favorably on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, will states move forward with establishing required health insurance exchanges?
M2 Health Care Consulting analyzed state legislative activity, funding allotments and statements from policymakers to assess the likelihood of whether each state will move forward with a health insurance exchange. The analysis is available for free in an interactive report format by clicking here.
While 15 states have enacted legislation to create an Exchange, more than half of states have not. “Despite a general sense that a majority of states are against health reform, our analysis found only 6 states were likely not to move forward to create an exchange on their own if the law is upheld by the Supreme Court,” said Brenda Gleason, President of M2 Health Care Consulting.

- Medicare Tax? Health Care for the Elderly? Let’s look at the facts about the proposed Medicare Tax … and a medical care program for the aged that already exists! What’s the hurry here? The supporters of the proposed Medicare Tax would have you believe that passage of this controversial bill is urgent … that persons over 5 are deprived of needed medical care because they can’t pay for it. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Kerr-Mills Law, passed by Congress in 1960 – enabled individual states to guarantee to every elderly person who needs help the health care he or she requires. We call this health program … Health Opportunity for the Elderly. Thousands of people every day are being helped by its generous benefits. And unlike Medicare, which would substantially increase your Social Security Tax payroll deductions, existing programs are being paid for now by a part of your present tax dollar! Medicare? NO. Health Care for the Elderly? YES! ….. 1964 American Medical Association Ad, A5157.
