    Residents of states that refuse to set up health insurance exchanges under Obamacare are set to be hit with higher premiums under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department.

    Insurance companies will be charged 3.5 percent of any premiums they sell through the federal exchanges, the department announced Friday.

    And insurers are likely to pass that surcharge on to clients, leaading to higher premiums.

    The only states to be affected are those that refuse to set up their own exchanges because of opposition to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. They are almost certain to be those under Republican control. In those states, HHS will set up the exchanges

    GOP governors are taking a hard line against implementing any part of the healthcare law, which will mean insurers in their states will need to pay the monthly fee, The Hill reports.

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced this week that her state will not set up an exchange, calling the proposal "too expensive and too risky." Her decision brings the total of states refusing to comply with the act's provisions up to 17.

    A federal system makes more sense anyway. Worker mobility is good.

    No, actually, it doesn't. A federal system will mean standardization of services and care at the federal level for all states, regardless of whether it makes sense or not.

    How ludicrous will it be for New Hampshire insurance to be required to cover scorpion antivenin, or Arizona to require its physicians to be trained on the latest techniques in hypothermia treatment?

    Even Canada's single payer system is administered at the provincial level. It sucks as it is, and I can only imagine the disaster that would result from Federal level administration.

    Yeah, its sooooooo good our legislators made sure they were exempt from it.

    Nothing says something like leadership by example.

    Which... oh, now it makes sense why the states are opting out. They're jus 'following the leader(s)'.
