New PA Insurance System Debuts after Glitches



A new insurance system for Pennsylvanians under President Obama's signature health care law is up and running online, but with glitches that are making enrollment difficult.
 
Tuesday was the first day residents could review information on the 56 health plans available to Pennsylvanians, such as rates and networks, and could start shopping.     
 
Coverage under the plans begins January 1st.   Heavy traffic on the website healthcare.gov has apparently created problems. In Philadelphia, an Independence Blue Cross spokeswoman says the insurer is enrolling people through its online system.  
 
Independence is offering 13 different plans on the exchange. State officials say many of those interested in getting insurance on Tuesday were those who were unable to afford it because of pre-existing conditions.
