    States have several different options to take part in the Affordable Care Act's health insurance marketplaces, where people can shop for health insurance. These range from taking full responsibility for operating the marketplaces to letting the federal government run them. To help guide state decisions, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently released the 2015 health insurance marketplace models for states. In their latest blog post, the Alliance for Health Reform's Sarah Dash and Georgetown University's Amy Thomas outline key deadlines and factors that states will consider when making their choices.

    The ACA has created a Health Insurance Marketplace (Marketplace) in every state, which offers individuals and small businesses the opportunity to shop from an array of affordable, comprehensive health insurance plans.  For those states that opted to operate a State-based Marketplace (SBM) or State Partnership Model (SPM), the ACA provides significant flexibility in the design and structure of the Marketplace; hundreds of policy and operational decisions had to be addressed during the Marketplace implementation process. CBPP has evaluated SBM and SPM states across a number of these Marketplace design questions and compiled the information in this interactive tool.
