Health Exchanges - Is Your State Moving Forward?

The constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act is currently under review by the Supreme Court. The much-anticipated ruling is expected on or after June 25. Despite the uncertainty of the ruling, states are in various stages of activity related to establishing health insurance exchanges. California was the first state to pass legislation after the federal law was passed in 2010. Other states that have moved forward are Colo., Conn., Md., Mass., Nev., Ore., Utah, Vt., Wash. and W.Va.

The governors of Ind., N.Y., and R.I. created exchanges by Executive Order after legislation failed. Other states that have initiated some activity on exchanges are Ariz., Ark., Idaho, Ill., Iowa, Ky., Maine, Mich., Minn., Miss., Mo., Neb., N.M., N.C., S.D., and Tenn.

A few states have chosen not to set up their own exchange, including La., N.J., and N.M. If the federal law is ruled constitutional, states will have until November 16, 2012 to declare to the federal government how they plan to operate their health insurance exchanges. The Academy is working closely with the public policy panels in many states in their advocacy efforts to include MNT services in the states' essential benefits packages. Reach out to your affiliate leaders to get involved.
