BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Gov.-elect Robert Bentley says he plans for Alabama to run a health insurance exchange, a part of the new federal health care law designed to help those with limited choices or ability to buy health insurance.
Bentley campaigned as a critic of the federal health care law and says he favors its repeal. But he told The Birmingham News in a story Friday that if Alabama doesn't set up the health insurance exchange, the federal government will do it.
He said state control is the better option and gives Alabama an opportunity to find good ideas and be at the forefront of making health care affordable.
