McHugh quoted in Business First article about health care exchanges

Richard McHugh, a partner in Porter Wright's Corporate Department in the firm's Washington, D.C., office was quoted in an article by Business First titled, "Experts weigh in on state vs. federal health-care exchanges" regarding whether or not the state will run its own health care exchange or leave the task to the federal government.

From Business First, Rick Rouan reporting:
"The federal health-care reforms do not compel insurers to work with such exchanges, and McHugh said he has heard anecdotes from insurers who would rather work with states than the federal government. Some also are questioning whether consumers in states that choose not to set up their own health-care exchanges will be eligible for federal subsidies, he said."
