- Purpose of State Action: Understand the purpose of the state action, such as whether the state is or intends to establish an exchange or is studying the feasibility of establishing an exchange.
- Structure of the exchange: Learn whether the exchanges will be structured as quasi-governmental entities, non-profit organizations, or will be operated by the state.
- Type of exchange: Find out which states are establishing exchanges that will function as active purchasers versus clearinghouses for insurance plans.
