Health Care Exchange Action Center

November 29, 2012 J

What are health care exchanges?
The Exchanges created under the President’s new health care law (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010) are far from simple, innovative, or transparent.  They also aren’t likely to drive down costs because they don’t encourage competition. Instead, these Exchanges heap layers of onerous rules, restrictions, and mandates on states and insurers.  They empower bureaucrats at the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), binding consumers’ choices and taking more control away from states. Click here for more information.
