ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's revamped health exchange website has opened early for people to enroll in insurance plans.
Dr. Joshua Sharfstein announced on Twitter that the website was open for individuals to enroll on Tuesday, a day early.
Andrew Ratner, a spokesman for the exchange, says it seems to be working well so far. Ratner says 5,324 people have applied and 1,915 applications have been completed since early Tuesday afternoon.
Ratner says the state decided to open the website early after other aspects of a gradual rollout worked well.
