HARTFORD, Conn. – A North Haven woman who was dropped from her Affordable Care Act plan even though she was paying her monthly premiums, is not alone.

According to Access Health CT CEO Kevin Counihan, there are 5,700 consumers who were inadvertently dropped from their plans for a variety of reasons.

Counihan told CTNewsJunkie Wednesday that they have been working on the issue on a case-by-case basis with consumers and insurance carriers, and will have a programming fix ready that will take care of a majority of the problems on July 18.

Continually touted as one of the more successful state exchanges with plans to sell its system to other states, Counihan admitted that the rollout hasn’t been without its glitches.

    As a strong supporter of health care reform, I sadly have to conclude that it shouldn’t have been called the Affordable Care Act. A name like “Murphy’s Law” would have been more appropriate.

    The Unaffordable Care Act meets Murphy’s Law. Health care reform yes, this disaster, no.
