“The ACA cannot be implemented without an insurance exchange in each state. It’s a go or it’s a no-go. It’s that simple.”As Robert Laszewski, president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, Sept 2012, HealthDay.
“The exchange is the foundation of health care…Without these exchanges we’re really not going to reform anything.”Terry Gardiner, national policy director for the Small Business Majority in 2010.
** Although exchange supporters encourage insured individuals and families to try to find lower-cost taxpayer-subsidized coverage on the government exchange, there is no reason to change coverage if an individual or family currently has private health insurance that meets federal requirements.
