MD Health Exchange Delayed In Opening

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - The opening of Maryland's online health benefit exchange has been delayed by problems with the exchange's website.
    
Rebecca Pearce, executive director of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, said the exchange expects to resolve the problem sometime mid-day on Tuesday. She also has said some opening-day glitches were anticipated.
    
Despite the delay, supporters of the health care overhaul cheered the first day of a six-month open-enrollment period.
    
Katie League, an outreach and enrollment manager at Health Care for the Homeless in Baltimore, used paper applications to register people in the morning. She says she isn't surprised of the opening delay because there are a lot of moving parts. She says Tuesday is like the start of football pre-season. She says "not every quarterback is ready on the first day of preseason."
