Md. Senate Advances Bill On Health Exchange

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Maryland Senate has advanced a measure to provide insurance for people who were unable to enroll in the state's health exchange website due to computer problems.
    
The Senate voted 36-8 late Monday to adopt a favorable report on the measure. That sets the stage for a vote Tuesday to send the bill to the House.
    
The measure would allow people to enroll in an already existing state insurance pool. Supporters hope it will only be a backup plan, because people can get retroactive coverage under an extended deadline offered by four exchange insurance providers. The new deadline is 5 p.m. Tuesday.
    
Opponents say there are too many questions about problems with the exchange to move forward with the bill.
