Repeal Ripples: Five Obamacare Exchange Chiefs Contemplate An Uncertain Future
Jan 31, 2017 4:45 PM - The health insurance marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act are in their fourth year of selling health insurance plans to people who don’t get insurance through work. Most states use Healthcare.gov to sell their plans, but 11 states and D.C. run their own marketplaces, also called exchanges. Under the vision of the law, the exchanges are supposed to become self-sustaining businesses within a few years, supported by the fees insurers pay to offer plans on the sites. But with Donald Trump installed as president and Republican majorities controlling both houses of Congress that vision, like the rest of the health law, is in question.
