In an Associated Press story, Gov. Nathan Deal suggested that he will not implement a Georgia health insurance exchange as part of the 2010 health care reform law.
Deal told the AP on Wednesday that he wouldn’t disclose his decision until notifying federal authorities. But he noted that the state stopped planning an exchange.
The decision to halt the planning process, Deal said, is “probably a pretty good indication of where we are headed.”
If Georgia decides not to run the exchange, the federal government will operate this online insurance marketplace in Georgia. Here’s a link to the AP story.
