Sebelius: Health Insurance Exchanges Planned by 18 States

(Reuters) - A total of 18 U.S. states are planning to start their own health insurance marketplaces, which will be available to consumers and businesses in 2014, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a blog posting on Monday.

The deadline for states to inform the federal government if they would operate healthcare exchanges under President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law was Dec. 14. The number of states participating was in line with expectations and leaves the government to create online marketplaces for the rest of the country.
