Consumers, employers leery of brokers

A market research firm says some consumers in the District of Columbia are skeptical about the idea of insurance broker involvement in the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) exchange system.

Analysts at the firm, Perry Undem, have presented that finding in a report on focus group research prepared for the District of Columbia Health Benefit Exchange Authority.

Jurisdictions can choose whether to set up their own exchanges or let HHS do the job. The District of Columbia is setting up its own exchange.

The Perry Undem analysts based their findings on discussions with six focus groups that came together in May.
