Objectives: Under Section 1332 of the PPACA, states can apply for State Innovation Waivers and pursue innovative strategies to adapt many of the law's requirements to suit the state's specific needs. To receive approval, the state must demonstrate that a proposed waiver will provide access to quality health care that is at least as comprehensive and affordable as would be provided without the waiver, will provide coverage to at least a comparable number of residents ofthe state as would be provided coverage without a waiver, and will not increase the federal deficit. Before submitting its Section 1332 waiver application the state must also provide a public notice and comment period, including public hearings, sufficient to ensure a meaningful level of public input, and enact a law providing for implementation of the waiver. Under a Section 1332 waiver, a state may receive pass-through funding associated with the resulting reductions in federal spending on Marketplace financial assistance consistent with the statute.
