Hawaii insurance marketplace launches with plans

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii's health insurance marketplace under President Barack Obama's federal health care overhaul is now offering plans for sale, more than two weeks after the start of open enrollment.

Hawaii Health Connector Executive Director Coral Andrews said at a news conference Tuesday that consumers can now review and buy plans offered on the exchange's website.

The opening comes after more than two weeks of trying to fix technical problems that rendered the site unable to display plans and prices.

The delay caused some people without insurance to go directly to insurance companies, which offered the same plans without the ability to check for tax subsidies and other rebates.

Andrews says connector employees will manually process initial applications that came in before the plans went live on the site.
