ACA Facts: Affordable Health Insurance Exchanges

April 3, 2013

Affordable Health Insurance Exchanges

The ACA ensures individuals and small businesses will have seamless access to affordable coverage through a new state-based competitive marketplace. Starting in 2014, Affordable Insurance Exchanges will provide individuals and small businesses with a "one-stop shop" to find and compare affordable, quality private or public health insurance options, find out if they are eligible for tax credits for private insurance or health programs (e.g. Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)), and get answers to important questions. HHS has currently awarded $670 million to 33 states, including the District of Columbia to help them build these exchanges.
