Massachusetts Braces for ACA Repeal

By: Brady Bizarro, Esq.

This morning, I had the pleasure of attending a conference held by the Massachusetts Association of Health Plans on “Examining the Effect of a Repeal of the ACA on the Mass. Healthcare Market.” A number of state lawmakers, consultants, and industry experts offered their opinions on how the Commonwealth could move forward in a post-ACA world. As the discussions deepened, a similar theme developed: a fear of market destabilization in the face of sweeping federal action. This is a theme not just in the public sector, but in the private sector as well. Employers and insurers alike are anxious about the future. Hopefully, in the coming months, a clearer picture will emerge.
