Governor Snyder Hopes Michigan Will Set Up Insurance Exchange Under New Healthcare

Posted: Updated:

Governor Snyder is hoping Michigan will set up an insurance exchange under President Obama's Health Care overhaul.

He also says he welcomes an extension of the deadline for submitting a plan.

This month's deadline remains for states to say if they plan to create Health Insurance Exchanges, or let the Federal Government do it for them.

States opting to set up exchanges now have until December 14th, to submit detailed plans.

Snyder's been pushing for a state-based exchange, cut hasn't won approval from fellow Republicans, who control the legislature.
