Improving the health insurance marketplace

Strategies to foster healthy markets

As implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) moves forward, discussions continue on how to make the health insurance marketplace work the best for patients.  Will patients be able to get the health insurance coverage they need, at prices they can afford?  How can we ensure that individuals who do not have access to employer-provided health insurance coverage have ample, affordable and meaningful health insurance options?  

The AMA is committed to the development of vibrant and competitive health insurance markets through which individuals and families can purchase health insurance that is affordable and meets their health care needs. 

A new AMA policy series, "Improving the Health Insurance Marketplace," highlights specific topics and actions that can help promote a strong health insurance marketplace that benefits patients and their physicians.
