"States across the country are working to implement the health care law and build a marketplace that works for their residents," said Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

"In 10 months," she added, "consumers in all 50 states will have access to a new marketplace where they will be able to easily purchase affordable, high quality health insurance plans, and today's guidance will provide the information states need to guide their continued work."

Among the states cleared to conditionally operate state based exchanges are - California, Nevada, Idaho, New Mexico, Hawaii, Vermont and Utah, while Arkansas is conditionally approved to run a State Partnership Exchange.

"The conditional approvals follow those previously granted to Colorado, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington to operate State-based Exchanges and to Delaware to operate a State Partnership Exchange. To date, 20 states including DC have been conditionally approved to partially or fully run their marketplaces -- with the remaining states having until February 15, 2013 to apply for a State Partnership Exchange."
