The State capital of Alabama Governor Bob Riley told now the state wonâ??t implement the central governmentâ??s new high-risk health insurance pool for citizens unable to get secret coverage. Friday was the closing date for states to decide whether to participate in that part of the latest federal health care graph.

Riley advised Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius that Alabama will postpone to her section to apply the Alabama health insurance. Alabama is one of various states challenging the new health care graph in court. Alabama joins many other states in opting out, as well as, Mississippi, Nebraska, , Louisiana, Nebraska, Minnesota, Nevada, Georgia, Hawaii, Virginia, Wyoming and South Carolina

Riley said the federal allotment for Alabama and the premiums gathered would not be enough to cover the expenses incurred by a state-run agenda. We would wish to have Alabama people dealing with Alabama people.  Still after an complete review, we have decided it would be infeasible if not impossible for the state to assume this problem,” the governor said in a statement.

Alabama Insurance Commissioner Jim Ridling, a Riley appointee, said a lack of ordinances from the federal government was a factor in the conclusion.
“Without knowing what regulations will be attached to this agenda or the premium structure or what the cost will be, the state canâ??t take on this kind of responsibility,” he said.
