An important element of the health care law, known as the essential benefits package is currently being developed and federal health officials want the public to weigh in on just what it should include, a Health and Human Services director said Thursday in Forestville.

The benefits package defines the minimum benefits to be included in health plans sold by state exchanges starting in 2014. But just what coverage will be included in the minimum plan remains to be determined.
