Key Stakeholders Want TN to Operate It's Own Health Insurance Exchange

According to the State of Tennessee Insurance Exchange Planning Initiative, "Key stakeholders now express (in writing) their preference that Tennessee operate the exchange instead of the federal government. 

These groups include all of the major insurers, both major associations for brokers and agents (i.e., Tennessee division of the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) and National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisers (NAIFA) in Tennessee), Tennessee Medical Association (TMA), Tennessee Hospital Association (THA), Tennessee Health Care Campaign, National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), Tennessee Primary Care Association (TPCA), and American Cancer Society-Tennessee Chapter. 

No group has expressed a preference for a federally-run exchange."

Other updates re: the Insurance Exchange Planning Initiative include:

The State will procure services of an actuarial consultant as well as policy and operations consultant.

A health care provider and advocate roundtable discussion is scheduled for December 8 in Nashville.
