The first day of enrollment in Alaska’s health care exchange led to a system freeze up, which in turn left brokers and navigators with little help to offer people and hoping that the web-based insurance marketplace will begin to work, eventually.
Tyann Boling, chief operating officer with Enroll Alaska, said the federally designed marketplace was not working as of Wednesday afternoon. She had no idea when it might be up and running. The word is that it’s overloaded, she said.
“We didn’t know what the marketplace was going to look like, we still don’t,” she said.
