Gas, groceries and rents are all pricier in Summit and Eagle counties than in Denver, just a hundred miles away. Health insurance costs a lot more in these mountain communities, too, and some folks are crying foul. Their congressman — a Democrat — is asking the feds for relief.
In November, Doug Normington, a self-employed videographer in Madison, Wis., became one of the scores of Americans who got letters from their insurance companies canceling their coverage because it wouldn't meet Affordable Care Act standards. Then the 58-year-old diabetic became one of the countless people frustrated by HealthCare.gov.
Because HealthCare.gov was barely functioning in October and much of November, the administration is falling far short of the 3.3 million people it has projected would sign up by the end of December. Still, federal officials say they're confident that 7 million people will have obtained insurance on the exchanges by the end of March.
