The Affordable Care Act creates a new marketplace for individuals and small employers to purchase health insurance, known as “exchanges.” The exchanges will be operated by states or, if the states are unwilling or unable to set up an exchange, the Federal government. Not to be outdone, many private organizations have begun establishing private exchanges that will serve a broader audience and compete with the state and Federal exchanges. In this session, you will learn:
What is an exchange and who is eligible for coverage under the exchanges,
What types of benefits will be offered through the exchanges,
Whether the exchanges will prove to be an effective means of delivering insurance,
Whether the private exchanges might prove to be a viable alternative to the state/Federal exchanges or to coverage outside of the exchanges.
