A Health Insurance Exchange is a government-regulated marketplace of insurance plans with different tiers, or levels of coverage, offered to individuals or employers.  Supporters of Health Insurance Exchanges believe that government-regulated exchanges will increase competition and lower prices.

Currently, Utah and Massachusetts operate health insurance exchanges in their respective states.
