Gov. Dennis Daugaard said that South Dakota will not be creating a state health insurance exchange. This comes amidst several other governors following suit.
Gov. Daugaard said that “After extensive research and analysis, it has become very apparent that operating our own exchange will simply not work for South Dakota.” Daugaard also said he opposes the federal law, “Because it is a large expansion of government that does little about the rising cost of health care.”
