GHG Overview and Analysis: NPRM on Exchanges

On July 11, 2011, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released two proposed rules to implement provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) which authorize competitive marketplaces known as Affordable Insurance Exchanges, or “Exchanges,” where individuals and small employer groups can compare private health insurance options on the basis of price and quality, enroll in qualified health plans and receive federal subsidies (or determine eligibility for other health programs such as Medicaid and CHIP). The Exchanges are effective beginning January 1, 2014.

As promised, the GHG policy team has developed a summary and analysis of the release.
