Insurance industry consultants say insurers operating on the new U.S.-run health exchanges are receiving electronic files that cannot open or have so much missing information on new enrollees that they are unusable. Some insurance companies have been forced to fix entries by hand. “If we don’t see substantial improvement by the end of this week, then I would throw up the yellow flag,” said Dan Schuyler, a consultant advising states and insurers on the exchanges. “If we don’t see it in the next two to three weeks, it’s time for red flags.” At the same time, most of the 14 state-run exchanges reported performing with fewer troubles.
