Obermayer’s Health Care Department Chair, Lawrence Tabas authored the article, “Health Insurance Exchanges and the New Federal Health Care Law” published in the monthly issue of the Pennsylvania Republican. 

In the article, Lawrence explains what is a Health Insurance Exchange and why many states, including Pennsylvania and New Jersey, opted not to establish a state run exchange, leaving it to the federal government to do so. He also offers an alternative model for a Health Insurance Exchange that would be more attractive to consumers, employers and states.
