HHS Releases List of Conditionally Approved State Insurance Exchanges
12/21/2012

HHS has released a list of the state insurance exchanges that have received conditional approval for operation in 2014 (with open enrollment beginning in October 2013) - and the list is short.

States receiving conditional approval for state-based exchanges:

  1. Colorado
  2. Connecticut
  3. District of Columbia 
  4. Kentucky
  5. Maryland
  6. Massachusetts
  7. Minnesota
  8. New York
  9. Oregon
  10. Rhode Island
  11. Washington

States receiving conditional approval for state partnership exchanges:

  1. Delaware

This could leave as many as at least 39 states (including Kansas) in which qualified health plans will be available in 2014 only through a federally facilitated exchange.

States still have until February 15, 2013 to file declaration letters and applications to establish a state partnership exchange.

For additional background on exchanges and exchange implementation, see here, here, and here.
