States Passing on Setting Up Healthcare Exchanges

The next phase of the healthcare law relies on individual states to set up a marketplace for insurance buyers, but not all are going along with it.

FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern has more from Washington:

In 2014, health insurance exchanges – a shopping center for coverage policies – will be implemented.  But a growing number of states – all with Republican governors – say they won’t do it, and instead will have the Federal government design and operate the exchange.

More than two dozen other states, plus D.C., are creating their own exchanges or partnering with the Administration.  The deadline to inform the government was initially last week.  Now, governors have until next month to decide.
