Rollout of exchanges marked by glitches
Modern Healthcare

Just as President Barack Obama predicted, the rollout of the new state insurance exchanges is turning out to be bumpy just days before the exchanges open.

HHS announced Thursday that online enrollment of small businesses in federally facilitated health insurance exchanges will be delayed for one month, less than a week before those exchanges were scheduled to begin operating. The White House also announced that HHS’ Spanish-language online enrollment services would be delayed until late October, though Spanish speakers still will be able to enroll starting Oct. 1 through a call center or through navigators.
