Brokers See Progress in Alaska Health Insurance Website
ANCHORAGE, Alaska -

Officials working with Alaska's health insurance marketplace website say it continues to have issues but is making progress.

The website HealthCare.gov began operating about two months ago and counselors and brokers had trouble signing people up.

Private broker Enroll Alaska shut down for three weeks at the end of October after determining that the site had an incorrect subsidy calculator for Alaska.

Enroll Alaska chief operating officer Tyann Boling tells the Anchorage Daily News that enrollment numbers are now coming up dramatically.

Boling says that on a scale of one to 10, the website is about a seven. Boling says problems can arise on a case-by-case basis.
