State-run exchanges are having problems, too. Many Californians who signed up through the state exchange say their insurers never got those records. As a result, they can't pay their premiums to make sure their coverage starts in two weeks. Sebelius tried to downplay any such problems at last week's hearing. "People will be enrolled," she said.
