National Health Insurance Site Sputters in Wyoming
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Only a handful of Wyoming residents have managed to enroll for health care coverage through the troubled federal insurance exchange network that kicked off three weeks ago.
WINHealth and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming are the only two insurance companies offering coverage through the new federal health care exchange. Company representatives say that about 30 people total have signed up with both companies so far.
Wyoming Insurance Commissioner Tom Hirsig says he’s been unable to register on the site despite trying every day since it came online.
President Barack Obama addressed the nation on Monday to discuss national problems with the troubled Internet site.
Obama says he wouldn’t try to sugarcoat national problems with the Internet site but says his administration is dedicated to getting it fixed.
