The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that the private company, Enroll Alaska, involved in helping people register for ObamaCare, has only enrolled three people so far because of the failure of the federal marketplace exchange. It had hoped to enroll as many as 2,000 by this point.
When asked at a legislative hearing if the state had plans to take care of “our own,” by creating its own marketplace, Bret Kolb, the director of the Alaska Division of Insurance said it was unlikely.
“We’re trying to figure out what our motivation would be,” he said.
Good question: Would could possibly be the motivation for the state and its workers, including the governor, to help the public get health insurance, when they get such good publicly funded health insurance themselves?
