Legislators cite flaws in NY health exchange

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- State legislators say some problems plague the rollout of the Affordable Care Act in New York, with constituents complaining about lost insurance coverage, higher premiums and confusion and limitations of medical networks.

Donna Frescatore, executive director of the state's new health exchange, says at a Senate oversight hearing Monday they've enrolled 294,000 New Yorkers in private insurance or Medicaid since October and the effort so far has been an overwhelming success.

The exchange was established under federal health care reform in an effort to extend coverage to 2.7 million uninsured New Yorkers.

Senate Health Committee Chairman Kemp Hannon, a Nassau County Republican, says state data show the exchange enrolled only about 76,000 uninsured with commercial or nonprofit carriers, that others signed up for Medicaid or had insurance before.
