Modern Healthcare

The heads of two state-run health insurance exchanges say they are concerned that there may not be enough time for testing the marketplaces before open enrollment begins Oct. 1.

An endeavor as complex as establishing an exchange would normally take three years, Kevin Counihan, CEO of the Connecticut Health Insurance exchange said Monday during a panel discussion of the World Health Care Congress in National Harbor, Md. Under federal guidelines, the work must be done in a 10-month period.
