BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ North Dakota's House Republican majority leader says the Legislature may take another look at whether the state should help run a new health insurance marketplace.
The health ``exchanges'' are a key part of the new federal health care law. Fargo Representative Al Carlson says in the wake of last week's elections, the law isn't likely to be changed.
A year ago the Legislature turned down a proposal to have the state run its own health insurance exchange _ instead of letting the federal government do it.
There's another option called a ``state partnership exchange.'' It would allow North Dakota officials to run some parts of the exchange. Carlson says that's a possibility.
North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple says the partnership is an option, but he wants more information about it.
