Nebraska Will Wait to Implement Health Care Exchanges

Governor Heineman recently said Nebraska will wait to set up a health care exchange until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on whether the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the “Act”) is constitutional.  The health care exchanges are intended to offer health insurance to those currently without coverage.  While Nebraska is planning a program in case the Act is ruled constitutional, Governor Heineman said it does not make sense to build a formal proposal until the Court has decided.  The Act requires states to have a health care exchange plan certified by January of 2013.
