Health insurance marketplaces open with glitches, head-scratching

Steve Burger

On this live episode of The Trend, three experts joined us in the studio to answer calls from listeners in the Tri-State.

Nibby Priest manages Vaughn Insurance Agency Co. in Henderson, Ky. He is also a registered insurance agent for Kynect, Kentucky's state health insurance marketplace. 

Jamie Bruce is the chief development and marketing officer at MDWise, a non-profit that helps vulnerable populations needing health coverage in Indiana.

The University of Southern Indiana's public health administration program director, Kevin Valadares, joins us again to give us a "big picture look" of what's taking place locally and across the country.

Meanwhile, WNIN's fundraising officer, Rebecca Oates, is in the studio applying for health insurance coverage -- and she experiences a few of the "glitches" we've been hearing about.
