Infographic: States’ progress on health insurance exchanges
The healthcare law, now under review by the Supreme Court, requires states to have health insurance exchanges by January 2014. Some states have made extensive plans, while others have done little. Massachusetts and Utah already had state insurance exchanges before the federal law. California was first to pass legislation in 2010 after the healthcare law was signed. Washington has been awarded more than $150 million in federal grants for its exchange. The governors of Rhode Island, New York and Indiana created exchanges by executive order after legislation failed. Governors of New Mexico and New Jersey vetoed state exchange legislation. Florida and Kansas are among states that returned grant money to avoid federal involvement. Louisiana returned its planning grant and does not plan to set up an exchange.
