Maryland's Health Reform Coordinating Council makes 16 recommendations for implementing the new health care law in its final report out Monday.

The council is co-chaired by Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, who says he'll be leading efforts in the upcoming legislative session to create a health insurance exchange to help Marylanders get insurance. Brown says the exchange also will allow individuals and small businesses to get access to federal subsidies.

The panel will continue to serve as an advisory body to a new Governor's Office of Health Reform through 2014 as it monitors progress on implementing the federal health care overhaul.
