Many states not prepared for healthcare law
More than three dozen states could be unprepared or unwilling to set up the insurance marketplaces called for under the 2010 health-care law, leaving at least part of the task up to the federal government, according to a new report. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia have formally expressed their intention to set up the marketplaces, which are known under the law as health insurance exchanges. But many of the rest of the states are behind in their planning or have decided not to operate exchanges on their own, according to a report from the Health Research Institute, the research arm of PricewaterhouseCoopers’s health-care consulting business.
