The Obama administration refused to address Christie's veto directly. Health and Human Services spokeswoman Erin Shields said the administration is confident New customize jerseys residents will have access to a health insurance exchange on Jan. 1, 2014, as called for in the federal law.At least 10 states have passed bills to set up insurance exchanges, and two, New York and Rhode Island, have done so through executive orders, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. More than a dozen other states have legislation pending.
The states are all in various stages of preparation for the overhaul.The exchanges represent half of the president's strategy for expanding coverage to more than 30 million uninsured people, including 1.3 million in New custom team jerseys . Low-income people would be covered through expanded Medicaid programs.Christie's decision "is consistent with what a lot of other states have done, which is to take a wait-and-see approach," said Sabrina Corlette, who directs research on insurance issues at Georgetown University's health policy institute in Washington."Unfortunately for New Jersey, assuming the Supreme Court upholds the law, the veto will make it more difficult for them to (set up) their exchange, since there would be much less time to do it," she said.
States have a Jan. 1, 2013 deadline for Washington to approve their plans for the new health insurance markets, or else the federal government can come in and run things.Christie said the legislation he vetoed would have committed the state to operating a Medicaid-like program without assurance enough federal funds would be available to support the plan and limited the pool of plan participants as a result of its certification provisions, likely increasing costs. He also complained about the $50,000 salaries
the bill would have provided those who serve on the exchange's board of directors.
Because of all the uncertainties, the governor said, it is impossible to know whether the bill "best suits the interests and needs of all New customized Cincinnati Reds jerseys who will be required to finance these policy choices."Starting in 2014, the federal law as now written requires most Americans to obtain health insurance, either through an employer or a government program or by buying their own policies. In return, insurance companies would be prohibited from turning away the sick. Government would subsidize premiums for millions now uninsured.The law's opponents argue that Congress overstepped its constitutional authority by requiring citizens to obtain coverage. The administration says the mandate is permissible because it serves to regulate interstate commerce.
