Healthcare Marketplace Experiences Glitches on Launch Day

Posted: Updated:

36 of the 50 states don't have their own marketplace and are using the one that's run by the Federal Government.  According to Montana Insurance Commissioner Monica Lindeen, those states are the ones experiencing the glitches, including Montana.     

The standstill is not allowing Montanans to shop for health insurance, but the delay shouldn't be much of an issue.

Carol Blank, manager at the Riverstone Health Clinic says, "You have until December 15th to sign up. So there's no rush. There's no reason to panic, there's no rush."    

If you purchase insurance through the marketplace from now through December 15th, it will be effective January 1st.  But you can still shop after that. The marketplace will remain open through March 31st with approximately a six-week lag until your insurance is effective. That's six months total for you to decide if the marketplace is the right way to go.
