Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield said Friday they are continuing to make progress in enrolling people who have signed up for plans under the Affordable Care Act.
The insurance company admitted there has been a backlog because of all of the new enrollees. They were supposed to have health coverage by Jan. 1.
Anthem would not release specific numbers as to how many they have now enrolled.
They have extended the payment deadline to Friday, Jan. 31.
The Connecticut Insurance Department set up a special hotline, which can be reached at 860-297-3900, to help expedite the process.
Anthem is encouraging customers to stop by their Wallingford headquarters to get help in person and they also have a dedicated email address to helping Connecticut customers.
