State insurance regulators say many people who buy their own health insurance could get surprises this fall: cancellation notices because their policies aren't up to the basic standards of President Barack Obama's overhaul.

These people, and some small businesses, will have to find replacement plans -- and that has some state officials worried about consumer confusion.

The changes don't seem to square with one of the president's promises: "If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan."

But supporters of the overhaul are betting that consumers won't object once they realize that the new coverage they will get is better than current bare-bones plans.

Large employer plans that cover most workers and their families are unlikely to be affected.
