Webinar Tuesday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time will look at rates and plan offerings in state health-insurance exchanges

The second in a series of webinars for journalists covering the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will be held Tuesday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. ET. This one will look at insurance rates and plan offerings in the new state-based marketplaces known as health benefits exchanges.

The co-directors of the Kaiser Family Foundation's program for the study of health reform and private insurance, Senior Vice President Larry Levitt and Vice President Gary Claxton, will give a brief presentation on the early reports of rates, how and why they vary, and what consumers would pay after taking tax credits into account. They will also answer journalists' questions about the new insurance market rules taking effect in 2014, and how to interpret insurance rates.

Shortly after registering, each participant will receive a confirmation email that contains information about how to join the webinar.
