CMS halts Georgia plan for alternative health care exchangePosted On: Aug. 11, 2022 10:02 AM CST
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has suspended Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp's plan to create an alternative health care exchange to the Affordable Care Act marketplace, Becker’s Payer Issues reports. Originally set to go live in November, the new exchange would have had state residents sign up for health coverage through private brokers and not through the healthcare.gov website. The ACA waivers allowing Georgia to create its own insurance marketplace were approved under the Trump administration in 2020.
