Regulations Governing Exchanges

HHS has issued regulations governing the establishment of Exchanges required under the Affordable Care Act.

Document Excerpt

This proposed rule would implement the new Affordable Insurance Exchanges
 

 

(“Exchanges”), consistent with title I of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-148) as amended by the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-152), referred to collectively as the Affordable Care Act. The Exchanges will provide competitive marketplaces for individuals and small employers to directly compare available private health insurance options on the basis of price, quality, and other factors. The Exchanges, which will become operational by January 1, 2014, will help enhance competition in the health insurance market, improve choice of affordable health insurance, and give small businesses the same purchasing clout as large businesses.
