The Family and Social Service Administration has begun seeking input from Hoosiers about the state’s plan to establish a health care exchange program.
Governor Daniels announced the creation of a health care exchange program for Indiana in January, in compliance with the federal Affordable Care Act.
FSSA was commissioned to set up the program, called Indiana Insurance Market, Inc. Now, the state is looking for input on which of several models to implement.
“We have four stakeholder groups we’re targeting,” he says, “to answer the questions – of course, it’s open to anyone – but, insurers and insurance brokers, individual consumers, businesses and health care providers.”
FSSA spokeswoman Danielle Smith says the survey has gathered three hundred responses in its first two days, which she calls an encouraging sign. The survey closes on March 30th, and the results will be available online.
