Affordable Care Act rule announced

A final rule implementing a key provision of the Affordable Care Act was announced last week.  People who renew or buy health insurance after Sept. 23 will receive a four-page briefing in plain English explaining what health plans will cover and what limitations or exceptions will apply to the policies they are buying.  The rule is intended to standardize how benefits are explained in order to make it easier for consumers to compare plans.
