Health Insurance Exchanges


Sabrina Corlette, research professor at the Health Policy Institute of Georgetown University, presents an overview of the health insurance exchanges mandated in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  Unless the law is repealed, a health insurance exchange must be operated in every state by 2014.  The federal government will directly operate and fund exchanges in those states choosing not to operate state-run exchanges.  At Georgetown University, Corlette directs research on health insurance reform issues as they affect consumers and patients.
