Insurance Brokers Frustrated with Health Care Law

WHEELING, Ill. (AP) - Insurance brokers in Illinois say they're frustrated with the troubled rollout of President Barack Obama's health care law and the crippled federal website, healthcare.gov.

At a meeting of brokers Wednesday in the Chicago suburb of Wheeling, many of them vented their feelings to Max Fletcher, a policy analyst for the Illinois Health Insurance Marketplace.

Brokers also are worried that their profession is being threatened. They want to get the word out that they can help people and small businesses shop for health insurance.

Fletcher told the brokers to call on their legislators to support a state-run health insurance marketplace. He says Illinois could do a better job running its own system, although he concedes that's not likely to be a serious consideration in Springfield during the current veto session.
