NJ Receiving Federal Grant in Health Care Overhaul

Federal officials say another 10 states are getting a total of $230 million to set up new health insurance markets under President Barack Obama’s overhaul.

Seven of them — Colorado, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania — have either adopted a plan or are making substantial headway. But a recent Associated Press analysis found uneven progress among states setting up the new insurance exchanges, a linchpin of the law.

In two states announced Wednesday — Kentucky and Tennessee — it’s not clear whether policymakers will follow through. In Arkansas, officials concede that Washington will have to take the lead.

More than 30 states have received federal exchange establishment grants, but only 13 plus the District of Columbia have adopted a plan. States have until Jan. 1, 2013.
