HONOLULU (AP) — The Hawai’i Health Connector — Hawaii’s state-based public exchange — began giving consumers the ability to actually enroll in plans Tuesday, more than two weeks after the start of open enrollment.
Coral Andrews, the exchange executive director, said at a news conference that consumers can now review and buy plans offered on the exchange’s website, at https://www.connecthawaii.com.
“We heard from you,” Andrews said. “We know you’ve been anxious to get up and running.”
The vendor that helped build the connector, CGI Group Inc., signed a four-year, $53 million deal earlier this year.
Exchange managers spent more than two weeks trying to fix technical problems that rendered the site plan shopping system unable to display plans and prices.
