The National Association of Insurance Commissioners has published a definitive list of the Affordable Care models that passed during the recent plenary conference call meeting.
The plenary is the group that includes all voting members of the NAIC, Kansas City, Mo.
The NAIC plenary voted last week to approve the American Health Benefit Exchange Model Act, which will help implement provisions in the Affordable Care Act, the legislative package that includes the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
The exchange provisions will require states to create a system of state-based health insurance exchanges in 2014. The exchanges are supposed to help individuals and small groups buy standardized, federally subsidized health insurance packages that meet exchange program quality standards.
