Feds Approve Massachusetts Exchange Plan

Exchange Approval Letter

This afternoon, federal officials released a letter to Governor Patrick approving the Health Connector’s application to be a federal health exchange under the Affordable Care Act. (see letter here (pdf), and federal HHS Secretary Sebelius blog post).

Massachusetts was one of 6 “early applicant, early approval” states. This is a major step in ACA implementation in Massachusetts, and shows that we’re on the fast track. The Health Connector Board will be meeting Thursday morning  (9 am, 1 Ashburton, 21st floor, Boston) to discuss additional issues with ACA implementation in Massachusetts.
