New Mexico joins Utah with split state-federal exchange

New Mexico is following Utah in having the federal government operate the individual side of its health benefit exchange marketplace while opting to run its own Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).

The Associated Press reports state officials made the decision because there isn’t sufficient time to build the eligibility and enrollment system to serve the individual market segment for plan year 2014; the federal government will do so initially.  New Mexico was one of the last states to decide whether to operate a state-based exchange marketplace.
