Health-Insurance-ExchangesYou’ve probably heard about the Affordable Care Act, health insurance exchanges or even the health insurance marketplace. But what does it all mean? Health insurance exchanges or the marketplace offer an alternative source to purchase health coverage if you don’t buy it on your own, receive it through your employer, or from another public program.

Did you know there are different levels of coverage offered in health insurance exchanges? Do you know the difference between a bronze plan and a silver plan? What kind of help is available? What does the sticker price really include?

To answer these questions and more, check out our latest whiteboard video that breaks down the health insurance exchanges. Visit AccessBetterCoverage.org  and follow us on Twitter for more information on health insurance and finding the plan that’s best for you.
