Affordable Health Care Deadline Extended, Fallin to Decide Later

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Okla. -

An extension has been implemented to the decision deadline on whether states will elect to run a State-based Exchange for the Affordable Care Act.

According to an email from Oklahoma's Governor, "Governor Fallin's office will not be making an announcement today regarding the future of any exchange in Oklahoma."

Attached to the email was a letter from the Health and Human Services, stating, "Under the law, we are required to certify states' plans to run their own Exchange in 2013 by January 1, 2013."

However, under the extension, states "...may submit both a letter of intent and an application to operate its own Exchange by December 14. States may also apply to operate their Exchange in partnership with the federal government by February 15, 2013. And a state may apply at any time to run an Exchange in future years."
