Insurance Exchange Enrollment Issues
Obamacare Insurance Exchanges opened Tuesday with significant issues. The government website, healthcare.gov, had long wait times and broken links. Phone lines had twenty minute delays, but were much shorter by the afternoon. The new exchanges allow Americans to buy health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. But some insurance agents say the law will hurt small businesses. Coverage under the new exchanges won't go into effect until January 1st. Those without insurance have until March to sign up before they incur a penalty.
