Comments on North Carolina setting up an exchange

I was Tim Boyum’s guest on Capital Tonight earlier this week and we talked about North Carolina’s options for setting up a health insurance exchange. My comments are from the 11:00-16:45 minute mark.

Yesterday, Governor Perdue announced that N.C. would move ahead with a federal/state partnership approach to an exchange, with the N.C. Department of Insurance focusing on “the consumer side.” Lots of details to be sorted out, and incoming Gov. McCrory and the General Assembly still have full options available in the future (full state-based exchange, partnership or a federal exchange).

Here is a link to my series about North Carolina’s implementation of the ACA.
