Report Gauges Value of Plans in Health Benefit Exchanges
A new report from PricewaterhouseCoopers Health Research Institute estimates that health insurance policies offered through state health benefit exchanges could be worth nearly $60 billion by 2014 and nearly $200 billion by 2019. The federal health reform law calls for the creation of state health benefit exchanges. The report also predicts that consumers using the exchanges will acquire "purchasing power that will make health insurers want to work harder to win their business and loyalty."
