Utah's Republican Gov. Gary Herbert says he's considering whether to build a state-based health insurance exchange under Obamacare or turn it over the the federal government, but wants answers before he makes a final decision.
According to the Deseret News, he wrote in a Monday letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, "Without answers, it will be impossible to determine the best outcome for Utah’s taxpayers, families and small businesses."
The paper reports:
In his letter, the governor lists 10 main questions along with about 20 follow-up questions.
Questions include: "How much will it cost the state to participate in a federal exchange, including the government, taxpayers, and the private sector?" and "What is the process to ensure that a Federal Exchange accurately incorporates all state-specific procedures and laws?"
