The majority of individual health plans in a representative sample for the year 2010 did not meet the standards and benefits required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, according to the findings of a new Health Affairs study.

Researchers used the Kaiser Family Foundation/Health Research and Educational Trust 2010 Employer Health Benefit Survey to examine group plans and sampled enrollment data in five states through interviews with marketing managers at insurance carriers for the individual plans.
