Mikulski: MD Should Keep Health Exchange

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Sen. Barbara Mikulski says Maryland should stay the course with its own health care exchange, despite its troubled start.
    
Mikulski said Friday she's confident Maryland is on the right track in fixing computer glitches.
    
Maryland Rep. John Delaney has suggested the state consider moving to the federal exchange. Mikulski, however, says the federal exchange is a work in progress. She also questions whether it's advantageous to move from one system that's had a creaky start to another system that's had a creaky start.
    
The exchange says 20,358 people have enrolled in qualified private health plans as of Jan. 4. However, the state has had many more people enroll through Medicaid under the federal health care overhaul. The state says as many as 162,000 people are on track for coverage.
