SEATTLE, Wash. – New glitches in Washington’s health insurance marketplace are causing problems for some new insurance customers.
The Seattle Times reports that about a hundred people have called to say they paid their premiums, but have been told by insurance companies or their doctors they don’t have insurance.
The CEO of the Washington Health Benefit Exchange says they are victims of system defects and data issues.
Some people were billed incorrectly.
In other cases, people paid their bills and the money never made it to their insurance companies.
