By executive decree, Gov. Nikki Haley has ordered the establishment of the South Carolina Health Exchange Planning Committee, an advisory body charged with studying and recommending whether South Carolina should launch a state-based insurance exchange or punt that responsibility to the Feds. Either way, the Affordable Care Act (i.e. the new health care reform law) mandates that such an exchange be open by 2014, giving South Carolinians long-overdue access to affordable health coverage. The committee and its study will be funded through a $1 million Exchange Planning Grant from Uncle Sam. For more specifics, click below and read the governor’s decree.
