Health exchange takes down doctor directory
San Diego Union-Tribune

Inaccuracies and slow service caused the state’s new health insurance exchange to take down its online doctor and hospital directory Wednesday night, a top official said Thursday.

Dr. Jeffrey Rideout, senior medical adviser for Covered California, said that, in some cases, the directory did not properly list doctors who are working with multiple health plans sold by the exchange. He added that the directory was not loading as quickly as desired.
