Mass. eyes states with functioning health websites

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts health care officials struggling to repair the state's hobbled website are looking at the possibility of leasing or buying technology from states with functioning insurance sites. Massachusetts Health Connector officials said Friday that looking for solutions from other states is just one of four options being weighed.

Others include forging ahead with the current website contractor CGI Group, looking for a new vendor, or scrapping the website and starting over.

Despite the website troubles, officials say they are making progress whittling down the backlog of people looking to sign up for health insurance.

Officials warn that March could be a busy month.

The deadline to sign up or risk fees for those seeking non-subsidized insurance plans is March 31. Those seeking subsidized plans in Massachusetts have until June 30.
