States running out of time on health insurance exchanges

The Washington Post, June 17, 2013

With the deadline for states to implement Affordable Care Act-mandated health insurance exchanges less than four months away, state governments will need to move fast. States are having to reevaluate their existing health insurance infrastructures to meet the act's requirements. They have already received nearly $4 billion in funding for the effort thus far — and can access more dollars through 2014. Some states are still applying for additional federal funding for exchange-related projects. New Mexico, for instance, recently requested $20 million for outreach, education and marketing activities.
