Daniels Contemplates Health Care Exchange

Posted on July 20, 2012


Governor Mitch Daniels said Tuesday that he plans to discuss the future of a potential health care exchange with his potential successors. The Health exchange could determine the path of some rules and regulations regarding Indiana’s Health Care policies.

Daniels says he does not want to bind the next governor to a plan without consultation.

Libertarian Rupert Boneham, Democrat John Gregg and Republican Mike Pence are the three candidates running for Governor. Daniels says it would only be fair to these gubernatorial candidates to be aware of the future health plan they would have to execute.

“I just don’t think it’s right for me or my administration to make such a decision that the next administration then has to implement.” Daniels said. So I’m going to have to find some way to get input from the next governor,” Daniels said.

The spokesman for the Gregg and Pence campaigns stated that they look forward to working with the Governor.

Gregg’s spokesman Daniel Altman said they want to “make affordable healthcare for all Hoosiers.”

All states have until November 16th to send in a plan to the federal government for a Health Exchange.
