States have until tomorrow to let Washington know if they plan to participate in one of the first government programs to be launched under ObamaCare—new high-risk pools for the uninsured
Georgia, Nebraska and other states have already taken a pass.By law, premiums in the new pools can cost no more than insurance for people in a state's standard nongroup insurance market. Most existing state high-risk pools charge 125% to 200% of standard rates because patients in those pools are by definition more expensive to insure. The new health law says that the federal government will set what states must pay doctors and hospitals for patients in the pools, and that the pools must cover all pre-existing conditions from day one. Right now, most states allow some waiting periods before covering pre-existing conditions to control costs. Washington will also determine which medical benefits must be provided.

And how exactly do you find out if your state is trying to opt out?
Call your Gov's office... Good Luck!
