Seven states in total have applied to run insurance exchanges in tandem with the federal government after four more applied, leaving the feds to operate the marketplaces in at least 26 states in 2014, according to HHS. The latest applications for partnership exchanges from Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire and West Virginia came before a delayed Feb. 15 deadline for state applications. That final deadline for states seeking a role next year in operating the insurance marketplaces mandated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was originally scheduled for Nov. 16.
