Glitches in PA Health Website
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Glitches continued for a second day in a new insurance system for Pennsylvanians under President Barack Obama's signature health care law, making enrollment difficult.
Residents again reported Wednesday being unable to start shopping from among the 56 health insurance plans available to Pennsylvanians.
Coverage under the plans begins Jan. 1. Cynette Fleming, a certified nurse's assistant, says she came to Independence Blue Cross' mobile health insurance center in Philadelphia because she was having trouble getting information from the federal government's online portal, healthcare.gov.
Retiree Lucille Romano spent more than two frustrating hours at a Highmark retail insurance store in Allentown trying to create an account.
Pennsylvania is one of 36 states whose online exchanges are being run by the federal government after Gov. Tom Corbett declined the job.
