New resources from APTA help explain how the health insurance exchanges (exchanges)—a fundamental component of the Affordable Care Act—will affect providers of physical therapy services. The health care reform law created exchanges to provide competitive marketplaces for individuals and small employers to directly compare available private health insurance options on the basis of price, quality, service, and other factors. The primary purpose of the exchanges is to enhance competition in the health insurance market, improve choice of affordable health insurance, and give small business the same purchasing clout as large business.
Find links to general resources, APTA comments and summaries of exchange rules, and related resources, particularly essential health benefits, on APTA's new Health Insurance Exchanges webpage.
