Insurance brokers in Illinois vented their frustrations recently with the troubled rollout of President Barack Obama’s health care law and the crippled federal website, HealthCare.gov.
Dozens attended a meeting with Gov. Pat Quinn’s aide Max Fletcher, a policy analyst for the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace. Fletcher said Illinois officials also are frustrated but have no control over the federal website and don’t know when it will be fixed. Illinois chose to rely on the federal site, an online marketplace to compare and buy insurance, rather than setting up its own.
“Call Obama!” some brokers shouted in jest. Fletcher responded, to resigned laughs: “Obama doesn’t take my calls.”
