Why not let the feds manage your health insurance exchange?

What are the practical advantages of a state setting up its own health insurance exchange, versus letting the federal government create/manage the exchange for the state?

Are there particular benefits or drawbacks to one exchange approach or the other that make this a difficult question for some states? What impact does the decision make on the citizens (or health care providers) of a state?

The biggest thing is that there are some very good but very regional healthcare providers who may not participate in a federal exchange.

Best answer: This Washington Post article gives a good high-level overview of the practical challenges of state-run vs. federal exchanges.
