The report will be available on February 1 at: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/Publications/Fund-Reports/2013/Jan/State-Action-2014-Market-Reforms.aspx.

An interactive map showing state actions on the 2014 market reforms will be available at: http://www.commonwealthfund.org/usr_doc/site_docs/slideshows/StateAction/StateAction2014.html.

Methodology: This analysis is based on a review by researchers at the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute's Center on Health Insurance Reforms of new actions taken by all 50 states and the District of Columbia between January 1, 2010, and October 1, 2012, to implement or enforce seven of the Affordable Care Act's most critical consumer protections that go into effect for health insurance plan or policy years beginning on or after January 1, 2014. In the brief, these provisions are referred to as the Affordable Care Act's 2014 market reforms. The review included new state laws, regulations, and subregulatory guidance. The resulting assessments of state action were confirmed by state regulators.

State regulators were also surveyed about their authority to enforce or write new regulations regarding the 2014 market reforms. Forty-one states responded to the survey, although the report identifies only the 11 states that took new action on their enforcement and rulemaking authority. The states that may rely on their existing enforcement and rulemaking authority to enforce the Affordable Care Act are not identified, with findings presented only in aggregate.
