Navada - Just last week, the state drastically lowered their enrollment targets to less than half of their initial projections, moving the goalposts from 118,000 signups by March 31st to just 50,000. I’d guess that even that might be a little on the optimistic side, seeing as how only 24,000 had selected plans on the exchange as of early February, and of those, only about 16,000 have actually paid their premiums to ensure coverage.
And Nevada has loudly been touted by the left as one of the better success stories for O-Care!
“It has been a difficult month,” Jon Hager, executive director of the exchange, said in a report to the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange board.“We have had website problems, long wait times at the call center, frustrated partners, frustrated consumers and low enrollment.”
Hager outlined immediate goals that reflect issues that have plagued the system from the start: Fix the website and fix the call center.
But Hager won’t be there to oversee those attempted fixes, because he just joined the ex-directors of Minnesota, Maryland, Hawaii, and Oregon among the ranks of the resigned.
