TN refuses to set up health insurance exchange

Posted: Updated:
LINCOLN COUNTY, TN (WAFF) -

Tennessee became the latest state to refuse to set up a health insurance exchange.

Governor Bill Haslam said he will leave it up to the federal government since they haven't provided him with the answers to his questions.

The exchanges are part of the federal health care overhaul.  They would create new online markets where consumers will be able to buy individual private health insurance coverage.

Governors have until this Friday to decide whether to create a state-run exchange.
