A new report from the Urban Institute discusses how legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate would create a mechanism for states to offer their residents the opportunity to buy a Medicaid-based public insurance option. Eligible residents could use their premium tax credits to purchase these plans, and reduced cost-sharing requirements would apply as well. The bill could improve access to affordable health care in some states.
