NC To Build State-Federal Online Insurance Market

     RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina's version of a new one-stop shop to help people buy affordable health insurance will be run partly by the state and partly by the federal government.
 
     Gov. Beverly Perdue said Thursday she's choosing a state-federal partnership to run the health insurance market required by the Affordable Care Act. She said North Carolina lawmakers failed to establish the framework for a state-run insurance exchange, and the only other option was unattractive because the federal government would run it all.
 
     North Carolina also is asking Washington for money to help set up the marketplace of private health plans for those who now have the hardest time finding coverage.
 
     Insurance Department spokeswoman Kerry Hall says the money would help with management, consumer assistance, and computer costs.
