CMS Says Exchanges’ Glitches Will Be Resolved on Time
In a statement issued Wednesday, CMS said that its timeline to launch the Affordable Care Act's federal health insurance exchanges "remains the same" despite lingering concerns that several technical glitches with the online marketplaces could derail the scheduled Oct. 1 start of a six-month open enrollment period. Officials for several insurers also expressed optimism that the glitches would be resolved by Oct. 1. Meanwhile, information technology experts said such glitches are consistent with implementation of technology-based systems like the exchanges.
