It discusses implications to the rural population with regard to the influence states exercise over the insurance market and governance, the role of consumer navigators in helping consumers choose among qualified health plans, provisions for reasonable health care access standards, the use of multiple Exchanges in a single state or across multiple states, and developing Small Business Health Options Programs and certification of qualified health plans to meet minimum Federal standards. The report includes references.
