But the exchange's online software has been plagued with glitches that started even before its launch. Today's meeting signals that the problems continue.
"There are a lot of errors currently in the system,"
Consumers have reported paying for insurance premiums without receiving coverage or having to wait months for coverage. Other consumers reported not receiving tax credits, even though they were eligible.
Rich said 37,000 Nevadans enrolled and received coverage. That's about 31 percent of the exchange's initial goal of 118,000 by the end of March.
"It was a guesstimate. No. We didn't reach those numbers," she said.
"A lot of what is happening is undeveloped," Rich said. "We have to wait for CMS to provide guidance."
