Hawaii's ObamaCare Exchange Has Yet To Get Off The Ground

Hawaiians Continue To Be Unable To Sign Up For The ObamaCare Exchange 10 Days After Its Launch. "The insurance exchange - a key component of President Barack Obama's federal health care overhaul - hasn't been able to sell any insurance in Hawaii because of problems with the software at the heart of the marketplace. Consumers can't see plans, even though a variety of options from two insurers have been approved to be sold by the state's insurance division." ("Hawaii Relaunching ObamaCare Exchanges After Not Selling Any Health Insurance Due To Software Problems," The Associated Press , 10/10/13)

"The problems have meant consumers can only submit basic information using a web form, with the promise they'll be contacted in a few weeks." ("Hawaii Relaunching ObamaCare Exchanges After Not Selling Any Health Insurance Due To Software Problems," The Associated Press , 10/10/13)

(Tony Leys, "A Few Iowans Able To Get Through Health Exchange," Des Moines Register, 10/10/13)
