Mich. not alone on slow road to health exchange

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's administration declared this week the state has run out of time to create an online health exchange and must take a back seat to a federally run program.

It ends months of efforts by the Republican governor to get fellow GOP leaders in the House to approve a state-driven website for comparing and buying health insurance. But experts don't expect any final decisions soon by undecided states about setting up the insurance marketplaces as many hedge their bets before the November election.

Michigan joins only three other states planning for a federal partnership. Data compiled by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation this month also found 16 states have established their own exchange, an equal number studying options and no significant activity in nine states.
