Seven states have told the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that they want to share control over health insurance exchange (HIX) programs in their jurisdictions with HHS.
Another 16 states and the District of Columbia are hoping to run a total of 17 exchanges, and HHS itself seems to be on track to oversee 27 exchanges.
Analysts at Avalere Health have published those figures in a report based on a review of state exchange filings.
The final application deadline for states that want to set up partnership exchanges together with HHS was Friday.
States that hope to run their own, state-based exchanges were supposed to notify HHS earlier.
The states that have applied to work with HHS to run partnership exchanges are Arkansas, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire and West Virginia.
