Health Care Breaking News: Texas Groups Work to Promote Health Insurance Exchange

Wochit 1:05 mins

Texas officials have declined to establish a state-based health insurance marketplace, a major provision of the federal Affordable Care Act. So private organizations are working to educate Texans about coverage options through the federal health insurance exchange, which opens on Oct. 1. President Obama has returned to the debate over his new health care act, saying that more than 8.5 million people would be getting rebates this summer from their insurance providers. Insurers who fail to meet a provision in the law must reimburse customers, a process that began in 2012. An analysis funded by the insurance industry predicts the new health law will add an average of 3.7 percent to premiums in Massachusetts, while in New York state officials will likely announce premiums are expected to tumble.
