WA Health Exchange
The other States approved are: Maryland, Oregon, Massachusetts, Colorado and Connecticut.
A health exchange is a critical part of the Affordable Care Act passed by Congress in 2010. It changes the way health insurance is sold by centralizing the sale of health plans into a public online marketplace for each state. People will still be able to buy health coverage outside of the public exchange through other channels. States that don't have an exchange up and running in time for the Oct. 1 enrollment period, when people buy coverage for 2014, may use a site offered by the federal government.
Gov. Chris Gregoire says 200,000 uninsured Washingtonians will be able to receive insurance through the exchange.
