Insurance brokers are key to a successful health insurance exchange in Pennsylvania, Insurance Commissioner Michael F. Consedine told brokers recently. Speaking to the Greater Philadelphia Association of Health Underwriters annual conference, Consedine said, “Our producers really are our exchange right now.”

He stressed that agents and brokers remain the primary conduit for placing health care coverage, “so let’s not lose sight of that,” Consedine said.

Consedine said the state will have an exchange in 2014 as required by law, in some form or another, that will include a marketplace outside of the exchange. The state’s exchange also may include a mechanism for producer compensation, he added.
