Consumer Protections & Insurance Reforms

Our health insurance system is rapidly changing. New coverage options and consumer protections enacted as part of the Affordable Care Act have helped hundreds of thousands of Georgians secure health insurance and have expanded the rights and protections of all covered Georgians. At the same time, new models of health insurance (such as narrow networks), industry consolidation, and other changes within the health insurance system create new challenges and hurdles for consumers. As policymakers respond to these changes, it is imperative that the voices of health care consumers are at the table and that their needs are considered. Georgians for a Healthy Future monitors state and federal legislation and regulations on health insurance and weighs in on behalf of consumers.
