If some of that sounds a little garbled, then have no fear: We’re here with the basics of what we’re talking about, what the heck a 1332 waiver even is, and how we got to this point.

To begin with, let’s do a quick refresher of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and set the stage for this healthcare drama.

The Affordable Care Act and state health exchanges

Circa 2010, Congress voted the Affordable Care Act (ACA) into law, which created a federal exchange, a one-stop shop of ACA-compliant plans that would follow federal guidelines for minimum healthcare coverage.
