State Report Card

In this third edition of NORD’s State Policy Report Card we are seeking to expand our analysis to more issues that affect the rare disease community while also providing a more targeted analysis of policies analyzed in previous editions of the report.

Scoring for State Policies

A: State policy meets all desired standards. An A grade is considered the model policy that other states should seek to enact.

B: State policy meets most, but not all desired standards

C: State policy on the given issue meets minimum standards

D: State has some policy in place, but it does not meet the standards of higher tiers

F: State has no policy provision for the relevant issue
