SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Health overhaul excerpts say it's still unclear how many Utah residents have signed up for coverage on the online federal marketplace, but people are interested.
Lawmakers on Utah's Health System Reform Task Force received an update on the marketplace Thursday morning.
The online insurance marketplaces are a key component of President Barack Obama's health care law, which requires almost all Americans to have health coverage starting next year.
Utah has opted to let the federal government run its marketplace for individuals while the state runs its existing marketplace for small businesses.
The federal marketplaces have been handicapped by glitches and delays since their Oct. 1 launch, and federal officials have refused to release enrollment numbers.
Take Care Utah director Randal Serr says his organization is testing the website every day and it's improving.
