Inquiries Begin To Come In On Health Care Exchanges

Inquiries Begin To Come In On Health Care Exchanges

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A coordinator helping to sign up South Dakotans for insurance under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul says the federal marketplace website remains in high demand but people are getting through.

Kim Jones of the South Dakota Navigator Coalition says she has taken several calls Wednesday and has set up several appointments to meet with residents to discuss coverage options.

Jones says she’s not hearing a huge outcry of frustration, and the calls she handled Wednesday have had nothing to do with the website. She says callers are asking what the health care act means for them.

South Dakota is one of 36 states letting the federal government run its health exchange, where consumers can compare plans and buy health insurance.
