It looked good on paper, but organizers of a health insurance cooperative for Moore County are puzzled that not enough people signed up for it.
The prospects seemed great because the area had a modern hospital, an extensive physician network and a largely wealthy population. Health insurance is out of reach for about five-thousand small-business workers in the county.
Only about half the minimum number of 400 participants signed up for CoverMoore in the three-month enrollment period last fall.
Kinda makes you wonder how well the AHP (association health plans) will work . . .
