A State to State Analysis of the Health Care Legislation and Political Implications.

Many of them have chosen to wait and see rather than be on the fore front of its implementation. Disagreements about the cost of funding the law in relation to the benefits to the average American citizen has been the key obstacle and the democrats, as is expected, are making it extremely hard for the health care law to take root.

One of the areas lagging quite behind is the establishment of health insurance exchanges in supermarkets to provide the buying points for subsidized individual health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act. After a great deal of political maneuvering and bickering in 2010, these exchanges became a key role player in the Obama administration promise of better and affordable health insurance coverage for all. The elections in November 2012 of a Supreme Court ruling that is being awaited might just set things in either direction. But the timing will be all wrong because there will be no time to implement the law. Across the states, legislators for the states and governors alike are split between setting up of elementary health insurance exchanges that have basic features only and giving in to total control by Washington. Pending the Supreme Court ruling expected in late June 2012, governors are taking it slow until the decision has been made.

Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman had warned that it would be a costly blunder if the exchanges were to be established before the Supreme Court decided on their fate and has called upon all to wait. Some of the states moving at a quick pace to create the health insurance exchanges are; Maryland, Rhode Island, Oregon, California, Vermont, Connecticut and Washington among others. Other states like Maine and Iowa were making substantial progress in implementing the changes but have since stalled. To get a clear picture of the health care law popularity, an independent institution, the Urban Institute reported that sixteen states had taken small steps, or none all towards the creation of the exchanges fourteen states were significantly involved in the program while twenty were still somewhere in the middle. Some of the Governors argue that they unable to justify the extra cost burden to its residents where the larger percentage of the population currently, have coverage. However, it may be said, in States that have already put the law into effect, positive results are already being witnessed in just over 18 months since the law began operation. One thing they al seem to agree on is thwarting the cost pressure from Medicaid, a health insurance program for the financially incapable and which has experienced a rise in its membership since the health care law reform was effected. There is a lot of politics surrounding the health insurance legislation and debates that you need to be constantly informed about.
