SEATTLE — Seven months after major glitches in the Washington health exchange were discovered, thousands of state residents still don't have insurance they can use to go to the doctor or fill a prescription.
Although some problems have been resolved during the past few weeks, new issues also have come to light at Washington's answer to federal health care reform.
Insurance companies and the state insurance commissioner are concerned the total number of people who bought insurance through the exchange and are now having billing problems could be many more than the 6,000 customers identified by the exchange a few weeks ago.
Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler said he's giving the exchange one more month to fix the problems or he will take what action he can to help the people of Washington who want health insurance.
