Smart Benefits: More States Reject State-Run Health Exchanges

"Six more states said no to state-run health exchanges this week, forcing the Department of Health and Human Services to extend the deadline for states to declare their intent about setting up an exchange from November 14 to December 14, 2012.

The exchanges, a requirement of federal healthcare reform, are meant to be online marketplaces where uninsured individuals can shop for coverage, find out if they qualify for federal subsidies and compare plans. While many thought President Obama’s re-election would signal states to finally move forward with planning for the exchanges, Nebraska, Texas, Alaska, Indiana, North Carolina and South Carolina have joined 20 other states in declaring that they won’t set up the exchanges but wait for the federal government to intervene instead.

--------------------------------------

Unlike the decision by the six states last week, Rhode Island has been an early adopter of the exchange, moving towards the October 1, 2013, deadline to be operational. That doesn’t mean, however, that it doesn’t have its naysayers."

Well, 1 out of 27 is pretty good.

I guess they figure the federal government can do a better job. So much for laboratories of democracy.
