Minnesota Governor Appoints Task Force to Set Up Health Insurance Exchange

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has appointed a 17-member task force to develop proposals to improve quality of care, reduce health disparities among Minnesota residents and cut costs, according to a Star Tribune report.

The first task will be to craft a health insurance exchange for the state, which will allow individuals and small businesses to "comparison shop" for health insurance in an online marketplace. States must enact health insurance exchanges by 2014 or allow the federal government to take over the process.

The insurance exchange task force will be led by Commerce Commissioner Michael Rothman and will tackle design and operation questions for the insurance exchange. The other task force will focus on larger questions of healthcare quality and cost.
