(Bloomberg) -- A Missouri law requiring licenses for counselors who help consumers find health insurance on the new public health insurance exchanges was temporarily blocked by a U.S. judge.
U.S. District Judge Ortrie Smith in Jefferson City, Missouri, said the state, which declined to establish its own exchange, was barred from interfering with a program set up under the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
