Support grows for U.S. health exchange

Wall Street Journal, January 13, 2010

The White House wants to include a national health-insurance exchange in the health bill, which would give House Democrats one of their top remaining demands, according to an official involved in the discussions. At issue is who would run the new insurance exchanges that would allow consumers to comparison-shop for health coverage, the Wall Street Journal reports. The House's version of the health overhaul calls for the federal government to run a single, national exchange, while the Senate's version would let states run their own exchanges.
