This article summarizes the status of State health reform and includes a table of major initiatives undertaken by each State.
The Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA's) role in reviewing State waiver proposals is analyzed, and the author examines
why States are likely to continue to seek section 1115 waivers, absent Federal health care reform. The often conflicting roles
and responsibilities of Federal and State policy-makers in health reform are explored.
