Modeling the Impacts of the American Health Care Act on Massachusetts

May 23, 2017

The Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation, on behalf of the Massachusetts Coalition for Coverage and Care, funded a state-level analysis on the impact of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Massachusetts focused on 2022, when the law would be fully phased in.

Created by the Urban Institute’s Health Policy Center, this analysis uses state-level cost and coverage data from MassHealth (the state’s Medicaid program), the Massachusetts Health Connector Authority, and the Center for Health Information and Analysis. It is believed to be the first published study of the bill’s impact on an individual state.
