South Dakota receives $278k to bolster insurance markets

South Dakota is one of 30 states set to split $8.6 million in Obamacare grants awarded by the the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The money is to be used over the next two years to analyze the state’s marketplace with the goal of boosting competition and expanding individual market options. The money can also be used to improve access to mental health and addiction treatment services.

Under the Affordable Care Act statute, states need to funnel their grants toward measures that will guarantee availability and renewability of insurance coverage and promote non-discrimination through essential health benefits.
