Joint Legislative Meeting Monday on Health Care Exchanges

The Senate and House committees reviewing the federal health care law will hold a joint meeting Monday on Floridas options on health care exchanges.

The choice to remain in the default federal exchange, build a state exchange, or pursue a partnership exchange is one of the most important policy options facing the state ofFlorida as the federal government implements PPACA, Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, the chairman of the Senate Select Committee on the Federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, stated in a release.

Mondays meeting will provide the opportunity to hear from Brian Webb, a national expert who will provide the most recent information on the health care exchange component of PPACA.

The committees are to hear an overview of health care exchanges and state options from Brian Webb of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

Also, Florida Health Choices Chief Executive Officer Rose Naff and Florida Healthy Kids Corp. Executive Director Rich Robleto will outline current Florida insurance marketplaces.

Learning more about the Florida Healthy Kids and Florida Health Choices marketplaces will help our senators determine if these programs could be viable options for the creation of a state exchange, Negron stated.
