Enrolling uninsured may be a challenge in states that decline to run marketplaces

The Obama administration said this week that it would award $54 million to community groups in 33 states to provide personal assistance for people who are signing up on the new online health-insurance marketplaces, which open next fall. The size of the long-awaited grants offers a glimpse into the potential difficulties of carrying out the health law in those 33 states – including Texas and Florida – which are relying on the federal government to run all or part of their marketplaces. The states that are setting up their own marketplaces are getting separate funding from the federal government, and they’re expected to have more money to reach out to the uninsured.
