The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities tracks progress of states toward the abovesaid federal exchange.

The states that have decided to wait and watch are: Oklahoma, Alabama, Alaska, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.

These states want to wait - and watch the outcome of the Supreme Court decision.

A health insurance exchange is an electronic market where insurance buyers can connect with sellers, and the federal law or 'Obamacare' mandates that every state must have such an exchange.

This, it says, will help operate as an entry point for Medicaid clients, to sell insurance to their employers for their workers and connect insurance buying individuals to federal subsidies.
