Ohio Hesitates on Health Insurance Exchange, Raising Concerns About 2013 Deadline
Columbus Dispatch report.
By Jan. 1, 2013, federal regulators will decide whether each state has made sufficient progress in designing its own exchange, or whether the federal government must step in with its own model. The exchanges must be operational by Jan. 1, 2014.
While some states have acted quickly to implement exchanges, Ohio and many other states are waiting for the Supreme Court — or the November presidential election — to decide the fate of the federal healthcare reform law.
Ohio Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, who also runs the state Department of Insurance, has been an outspoken opponent of the healthcare reform law. She spoke yesterday at a conference, saying that "no decision has been made yet regarding the future" of a health insurance exchange in Ohio.
