When key parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) take effect in 2014, there will be a new way to buy health insurance. You will see these health care options referred to as the “health insurance marketplace,” the “health benefit exchange,” or simply “the exchange.” To assist you in evaluating options for you and your family, this notice provides some basic information about health care options available through the exchange.
