 US Health Insurance Exchange: Oklahoma, 14 More States to Wait and Watch for Supreme Court Ruling

In a week's time, the US Supreme Court will determine whether President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act is constitutional.

So, Oklahoma has been joined by 14 other states in delaying the decision on creating a health insurance exchange, reports tulsaworld.com.

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.
