Why States are Ready to Build New Health Insurance Exchanges

Ten years ago, following the passing of the Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as “Obamacare”), a large group of states tried to launch their own health insurance exchanges – and many of them failed. But a number of states are ready to try again, writes research analyst Brynn Bruder, thanks to vendors that have developed better software and other supporting technology.

 “As states move towards creating their own marketplaces, interested vendors should expect solicitations for system development, as well as for operations and maintenance. GovWin is currently tracking over 20 upcoming opportunities related to health insurance exchanges.”
