Md. Officials Provide Update On Health Exchange

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland official says a computer glitch with Connecticut’s health exchange will be corrected in the version Maryland will be using as it revamps its own troubled website with Connecticut’s technology.

Isabel FitzGerald, the state’s secretary of information technology, told a legislative oversight panel Tuesday that Maryland is on schedule to have its flawed website fixed with the new technology in time for the next open enrollment period in November.

The glitch in Connecticut led to about 900 canceled plans and affected thousands of others. Connecticut has installed a temporary fix, and a permanent one is planned to be completed later this week.

FitzGerald says about 83 percent of the Connecticut system that’s being brought to Maryland will be unchanged. She says changes that are being made are fairly minor.
