KPMG's Paul Hencoski Available For Commentary On Health Insurance Exchanges

NEW YORK, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With the deadline next month for states to provide plans and declare whether they will run a state-based health insurance exchange or rely on one from the federal government, Paul Hencoski, KPMG Principal and National Lead Partner for Health and Human Services, is available to offer insight and analysis on what the decision by the states means, how the exchanges will work, and the outlook on how they will be managed and operated.

Required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the health-insurance exchanges will be state-run entities that will help the uninsured obtain affordable healthcare coverage. KPMG is currently working on various aspects of health insurance exchange projects in some 17 states. States have until Dec. 14 to declare whether they will operate their own exchange and provide details for their state-run plans. The exchanges must be operational by Jan. 1, 2014.

To schedule an interview with KPMG's Hencoski, please contact Laura Sheridan Powers at 609-509-5875 or lsheridan@kpmg.com or Matt Weiss at 201 307 8138 or mweiss@kpmg.com.
