Keep informed on the health insurance market and its changes.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created guidelines for a new kind of marketplace for health insurance. 

  • Think of an exchange as an online marketplace. It’s a website where shoppers can research all their options and then buy health insurance.
  • The Affordable Care Act is expected to help increase access to health care. Health insurance exchanges will be an important part of that.
  • Depending on the type of insurance coverage you wish to purchase and your total household income, you may be eligible for reduced rates on the premiums you pay.
