Modern Healthcare

Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell said he will not apply for federal funds to implement a state health insurance exchange because a Florida judge ruled the health reform law unconstitutional.

Instead, the state Division of Insurance is exploring developing a health insurance exchange without federal dollars, including software applications and data that could be used to create an online clearinghouse on health plan options in Alaska, according to the governor’s office.
