Colo. health care exchange official seeks bonus
The head of Colorado's state health care exchange is asking for a year-end raise and bonus even though enrollment numbers are not meeting expectations.
Patty Fontneau is currently paid more than $190,000 a year. Her salary is supported by Colorado taxpayers. The board of directors for the exchange has yet to approve Fontneau's request.
According to the Denver Post , enrollment figures so far are short of expectations. Officials' high-end projection for how many people would enroll in an insurance plan through December was more than 61,000. But earlier this week, officials said just under 10,000 people had bought private health insurance plan.
The raise request was first reported by the University of Colorado publication Solutions.
