Georgia signs state-run ACA exchange into law

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed legislation May 2 that establishes a state-managed ACA exchange, pending approval from CMS.

Georgians are currently able to use the federal exchange and an online private insurance portal called Georgia Access, which connects individuals to health insurance providers.

Gov. Kemp had previously looked to block Georgia residents from signing up for coverage on A state managed ACA site had also been illegal in the state, which the new legislation reverses.

Currently, nearly 900,000 people in Georgia are enrolled in health plans through the ACA.

Eighteen states manage their own exchanges, and the rest use the federal website. If Georgia's website is approved, open enrollment would begin this fall and coverage would begin in 2024.
