Part of the Affordable Care Act will be the availability of health care exchanges throughout the nation. A health care exchange will operate as a competitive market for business and personal health insurance, and is intended to help both small businesses and individuals in finding the appropriate insurance policy for them. Health care exchanges will improve overall health plan quality and value while making it easier than ever for small businesses and individuals to find the coverage they need.
A health insurance exchange will offer a centralized place where people can compare different types of health insurance and find a plan that is right for both their health needs and their budget. This type of insurance exchange will ultimately be beneficial to consumers and businesses because it will make it necessary for insurance companies to compete among themselves for business. Insurance companies will need to lower their prices and provide a competitive quality of benefits and coverage if they are to remain successful in the market.
