Town Square: Hawaii Health Connector
They never expected to be at the very center of a government shut down, and while the fighting words over the affordable care act continue, states with health exchanges - including Hawaii- and the federal site handling inquiries for the 36 states without an exchange are open for business. Sort of. Traffic and glitches made for a rough opening. State Insurance Commissioner Gordon Ito, Hawaii Health Connector Coral Andrews, Tony Saguibo, VP of government programs for HMSA and Joan Danieley, Kaiser Permanente Vice President.
