New York Healthcare Exchange News

The New York Health Exchange successfully submitted its Blueprint application on October 26, 2012 to the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for approval to operate a state based exchange. It is expected that HHS will approve applications and issue certification decisions by January 1, 2013.

Also, New York submitted a Level 2 Exchange Establishment Grant application to the federal government on November 20, 2012. This grant application requests funding to implement and operate New York's Exchange through the end of 2014.
