Baltimoreans Frustrated Over State Healthcare Reform

See also

The controversy over the new healthcare rollout intensified as unbeknownst callers attempted to reach the Maryland healthcare hotline but were instead greeted by a Seattle pottery store. According to the Baltimore Sun, local officials expressed outrage about this latest development in the continuing debates over the latest healthcare reform.

"They really just need to get their act together. It's just a continual excuse-making," said Del. Kathy Szeliga, a Baltimore County Republican. Meanwhile, Lt. Governor Anthony Brown and others in the state cabinet are faced with the task of managing public concerns, as well as those of his colleagues.

The deadline for registering online for plans under the Affordable Care Act has been extended until March 31, 2014. The previous date for open enrollment on the State of Maryland's new site was January 31, 2014; however, this has since been changed.

Although the Maryland Healthcare Connection site began misdirecting callers to the erroneous number a few months ago, hope persists. Baltimoreans continue to exercise patience with the state healthcare reform intermediaries as they maneuver through the system.
