The exchanges are for those without insurance. People who receive health care coverage through their employers will not use the exchanges. Studies released this month by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services showed the lowest-cost silver-level policy on the Georgia exchanges would average around $304 per month for an individual.
Bill Rencher, the health access program director for Georgia Watch, a consumer organization that has tried to educate Georgia's residents about the pending changes:
"I was actually pretty thrilled with the prices," Rencher said. "They were more reasonable than I thought they were going to be. I tell people that affordable doesn't mean dirt cheap. Don't expect it to be free."
