Health Insurance Exchanges and Your Practice

Anders Gilberg of the MGMA discusses your practice's obligation to accept federal or state exchange plans and how to manage them properly.

According to HHS, more than 7 million Americans now have health insurance through health insurance exchange plans, commonly known as "the marketplace." And millions more are expected to enroll in the plans in the months to come.

So chances are very good that your medical practice will - if it hasn't already - encounter patients with these plans. But are you obligated to accept them?  What should you know about these plans vs. other plans?

In this video, Anders M. Gilberg, senior vice president for the Medical Group Management Association's Government Affairs Office, explains these details and other best practices in managing exchange plans and patients.
