Capital Impact: Health Insurance Exchange Issues (Audio)

The Congressional Budget Office projects that 7 million people will sign up for 2014 health insurance coverage through the federal and state-run exchanges. However, technical problems with the federally-run healthcare.gov have hindered the enrollment process, which may cost insurers billions in premium revenue. Bloomberg Government senior health-care analyst Matt Barry discusses his latest insight, "Billions for Insurers Ride on Exchange Enrollment." Bloomberg View columnist Al Hunt examines the job done by U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on the roll-out of the website, changes experienced by consumers whose existing policies are being canceled and the responsibility of President Barack Obama for the program's shortfalls. He speaks on Bloomberg Television's "Market Makers" with Stephanie Ruhle. Allen Scott hosts "Bloomberg Government's Capital Impact." (Source: Bloomberg)
