Heather Howard (Princeton) comments on state insurance exchanges on NPR
"As Deadline Nears, State Insurance Exchanges Still A Mixed Bag" - NPR. 2/21/2014.
States running their own insurance exchanges, although they may struggle initially more than states with federally run exchanges, may end up doing better in the longer term, says Heather Howard: "They have consumer assistance infrastructure, grants out to community-based organizations, and they're building and doing a lot more marketing. And their consumers are hearing much more about the options."
