A new report released by the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families (CCF) examines the impact of health insurance exchanges on how families shop for insurance for both adults and their children. Authors Dawn Horner and Sabrina Corlette highlight the unique potential challenges facing these families as they try to navigate the new exchanges, once they are established in 2014. Horner and Corlette also provide several recommendations to help alleviate the burden that parents might face in purchasing insurance for themselves and their children, such as integrating the exchange with the existing CHIP and Medicaid infrastructure and aligning verification requirements for public health insurance programs.
