Health Exchange Quagmire Continues

December 10th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

While the O’Malley administration has been subject to some harsh criticism regarding the slowness and many glitches with the Maryland Health Exchange website- there are some in Annapolis who say the governor has done everything he can to address the problems. The situation culminated with the Friday resignation of Rebecca Pearce, the executive director of Exchange, just hours after the Baltimore Sun reported Pearce went on a Cayman Islands vacation last week, as state officials were working to fix the technical glitches on the exchange's website.  Prince George's County State Senator Jim Rosapepe, who co-chairs the Joint Legislative Audit Committee called Pearce's resignation, "good news for taxpayers and for working families who need health insurance." He also said he believes Governor O’Malley and Lt Governor Anthony Brown have done everything in their power to fix the system. He also remains confident that the program will eventually be running smoothly.
