  • Gov's plan on health insurance

    Just two days before the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the constitutionality of President Obama’s  health care law, Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration in Santa Fe announced the creation of a task force charged with developing a state health insurance exchange.
    One of the major features of that law, known as the Affordable Care Act, is that each state must institute health insurance exchanges by 2014 for the purpose of insuring a competitive insurance marketplace in the state, offering choices in health plans and assisting consumers in understanding the insurance options available to them.
