Consumer Choices

The bill also helps to protect consumer choices by allowing individuals to keep their current plan (if they’re satisfied with it), or if not, allow them to peruse a list of affordable health care options (private plans, health co-ops and a public health insurance options) called the Health Insurance Exchange to best fit a consumer’s needs and budget. Employers will still be able to offer group health plans or potentially disengage and pay a penalty that sends their employees to the exchanges, co-ops or variations of the two if the employer has more than 50 employees on staff.
