SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah health officials say the diagnosis for the federal government's online insurance marketplace is improving from October when only 350 people in the state were actually able to buy insurance.
Utah Health Policy Project Executive Director Matt Slonaker said Thursday that technical glitches with the website have improved and many more people have enrolled.
Slonaker and other Utah health care experts met in downtown Salt Lake City on Thursday to discuss the rollout of the law and what to expect next.
The state is still facing a looming decision about whether to open Medicaid to more people.
The federal government has offered to pick up a majority of the cost, but Utah leaders say they're concerned Washington, D.C., may not be able to keep that promise down the road.
