The new health law does several things to both reduce the number of people without insurance and bring down the cost of health insurance across the board. Specifically, it will:

- Create health insurance Exchanges for individuals and small businesses. Exchanges will help businesses and families compare dis-counted insurance plans, prices, and benefits.
- Provide subsidies to help low- and middle-income people who don’t have an employer based health coverage pay for it.
