Brokers and buyers in several states still wonder what the public exchanges will be like.
Some state-based exchanges had their websites working well at least by early afternoon.
In Colorado, for example, the Connect for Health Colorado exchange’s website worked smoothly this afternoon. A visitor who simply wanted to see what plans might be available could put in an age and a ZIP code and see a list of available plans.
A visitor accustomed to using Amazon to shop for books could apply slider filters to, for example, narrow the results to include an annual out-of-pocket maximum of just $3,000 per family per year.
The full retail price for a single 48-year-old who signed up for that plan would be about $429 per month.
