Feds: KS, MO Insurance Marketplaces on Schedule

khi logo

The federal government will be ready to launch new health insurance marketplaces in Kansas and Missouri on Schedule. That's according to Marilyn Tavenner, who runs the federal agency charged with getting the online marketplaces up and running. She made that pledge during a stop today (THUR) in Kansas City.

Tavenner is crisscrossing the country to educate consumers about the federal health reform law. She says the new marketplaces will give millions of uninsured Americans a chance to purchase coverage made more affordable by federal subsidies. Republican opponents of the reform law blocked efforts in both Kansas and Missouri to establish state-run marketplaces. That forced the federal government to assume responsibility for operating them.
