Alaska among 9 states to skip out on insurance exchanges

Alaska Dispatch / Christian Science Monitor, November 19, 2012

Under the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, states must decide whether to form health care insurance exchanges, an online marketplace where individuals and small businesses can shop for health insurance. Sixteen states and the District of Columbia are on track to set up their own exchanges, while 9 have decided they will not, Alaska is among the holdouts. The federal government could end up running the new healthcare insurance markets in these states.
