State can run health exchange
San Mateo Daily Journal

The federal government on Thursday approved California’s plan to run its own health insurance market, a milestone in the state’s effort to meet requirements of the national health care reform law. California was among seven states that received conditional approval from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to operate their own insurance exchanges. Arkansas was approved to operate a partnership exchange with the federal government. In all, 19 states and Washington, D.C., have been partially or fully approved. Other states have until Feb. 15 to apply for a partnership exchange.
