Two New York hospitals say they still have not yet reached deals with insurance companies participating the state's new health insurance exchange. But one of them, Stony Brook University Hospital, says a deal is imminent. Much of the struggle is over low reimbursement rates.
New York's Department of Health released data on enrollment in its health insurance exchange this week. The data show 26% of young adults are enrolling in the exchange. This number is just above what experts call the "death spiral."
Connecticut and New York residents can start to enroll for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act on Oct 1. They’re two of 14 states plus the District of Columbia managing their own healthcare exchange, or marketplace.
