The Health 202: Obamacare marketplaces fare better in states that embrace them
Washington Post

Obamacare’s health insurance marketplaces haven’t failed, as some Republicans still insist. Yet the Obama appointee who set them up gives them only a passing grade.

Kathleen Sebelius – the former Health and Human Services secretary who played a crucial roll in implementing the Affordable Care Act – said she’d give the marketplaces “maybe a ‘B’ or ‘C-plus.’”

“It isn’t that the marketplaces are failing in their own,” Sebelius said in a recent interview with Health 202. “The framework in which they operate is – I would say – more constrained than could be helpful.”
