Insurance Exchanges - For who exactly.
More of a retweet (if I used Twitter) than a blog post, but I wanted to link this NPR commentary.
Maybe it is because I am in MA, which has had exchanges for some time, or since I enjoy an employer health plan, but I have heard very little in the way of 'information' regarding the exchanges becoming available in other states. NPR does a nice quick summary of who should be paying the most attention.
P.S. - Even if you won't be using an exchange, I suggest all get familiar with it and see what and how plans are offered. Maybe even compare to the plan you have.
P.P.S - I still beleive we will move from an employer provided to an employer reimbursed model over time. Don't think this is enabled in the tax law now, but will be as the exchanges gain utility. Won't be a rapid occurrance though.
