Some exchange rejecters have kept the money

Some states that have rejected participation in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) health insurance exchange program have been quicker to return PPACA exchange development grant money than others.

Officials at the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) has included a state-by-state PPACA exchange grant status table in a report on U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) administration of PPACA exchange and premium rate review grant money.

The states that have returned unused grant money -- California, Kentucky and Connecticut -- have sent $2.2 million back to HHS.

The seven states that are working with HHS to develop "partnership" exchanges have received a total of $176 million in exchange funding. Two of the states, Illinois and Arkansas, have sent about $116,000 in unused grant money back to HHS.
