Americans Call State Health Exchanges a ‘Top Priority’

Americans consider creation of a health insurance exchange or marketplace a top priority, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation/Harvard School of Public Health.

Fifty-five percent of those polled, including majorities of Republicans and Democrats, say that establishing the exchanges – a key element of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and one whose implementation has divided states along partisan political lines – is a “top priority” for their governor and legislature. Texas has chosen not to create its own health insurance exchange.
