    From WA healthcare finder:

    OLYMPIA, Wash. – To address the concerns of residents who made a concerted effort to get health coverage through Washington Healthplanfinder before the Dec. 23 cutoff date, the Washington Health Benefit Exchange today announced a process for those who started but were unable to complete applications, enabling them to enroll in health coverage beginning the first of January.

    “Many of our customers experienced problems with our system that may have prevented them from meeting the Dec. 23 deadline,” said Richard Onizuka, CEO for Washington Healthplanfinder. “We understand the frustration this has caused and realize that we must honor the promise we made to thousands of people in our state that Washington Healthplanfinder will empower them in finding and enrolling in health coverage.”

    The Exchange will systematically modify the eligibility and enrollment date of applications affected by errors to support coverage beginning Jan. 1. These complete applications submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 23 will have their insurance benefits retroactively configured to the start of the year.

    The solution will be for those individuals who started an application in the system prior to the Dec. 23 deadline and are determined eligible, select a health plan and pay for coverage by Jan. 15. The Exchange will follow up with a correspondence to these individuals with guidance in order for them to secure coverage effective Jan. 1.

    The Exchange worked closely with insurance carriers, state agencies and the federal government to ensure the resolution will work for all involved.

    With new, quality, health plans and greater access to financial help to pay for insurance premiums and co-pays taking effect in less than three weeks, Washington Healthplanfinder is also reminding new consumers they need to complete applications by Dec. 23 for their health coverage to start on Jan. 1.
