Health Benefit Exchange
An Interagency Workgroup has been formed with IDPH, Iowa Department of Human Services, and the Iowa Insurance Division to begin the initial planning.
Beginning in 2014, tens of millions of Americans will have access to health coverage through newly established Exchanges in each State. Individuals and small businesses can use the Exchanges to purchase affordable health insurance from a choice of products offered by qualified health plans. Exchanges will ensure that participating health plans meet certain standards and facilitate competition and choices by rating health plans' quality. Individuals and families purchasing health insurance through Exchanges may qualify for premium tax credits and reduced cost-sharing if their household income is between 133 percent and 400 percent of the Federal poverty level. The Exchanges will coordinate eligibility and enrollment with State Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Programs to ensure all Americans have affordable health coverage.
