AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine is getting a look at how the health care exchange under the Affordable Care Act is working for the state’s residents looking to enroll.
The Obama administration’s top Health and Human Services official for New England will brief lawmakers and health care experts on the Health Exchange Advisory Committee on Monday.
Republican Gov. Paul LePage opted to let the federal government run Maine’s exchange instead of the state taking the reins. The state estimates that as many as 250,000 residents could use the exchange, also known as the marketplace, including about 130,000 who are uninsured.
People throughout the country have struggled to sign up on the federal exchange due to high demand and glitches.
