Idaho Becomes Second GOP State Needing Federal Help on Exchange

Idaho joined New Mexico in requesting the federal government to help set up its health insurance exchange after initially announcing it would build and run on its own, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

The online marketplaces are required to open for enrollment Oct. 1 and sell plans to customers that begin after Jan. 1, 2014. New Mexico and Idaho were among a small handful of Republican states that opted to take control of their own exchanges rather than defaulting to a federally run option.
