Benefit standards and finances

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on May 27, 2009

Benefit standards are outlined in an article from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities from last Thursday. Benefit standards are summarized, and the needs of the legislation are addressed. Sarah Lueck makes the case that particulars can be charged to an organization and don’t need to be specifically outlined in the actual law.

The purpose of an effective insurance exchange is “to ensure that an exchange provides affordable, comprehensive coverage to all enrollees” and that it “enables people to make informed choices among competing health plans, and fosters competition based on price and quality”

In a related article, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ Judith Solomon outlines the role of subsidies and the more specific financial challenges faced by health care reform.
