Posted May 7, 2010 by Amanda

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.
