Medical care, insurance and business officials were named by Gov. Susana Martinez on Thursday to a board that will govern New Mexico’s state-run health insurance exchange, which must be quickly implemented in the new few months.

The exchange is to serve as a marketplace for the uninsured to buy medical coverage. The board faces a tight deadline of having the exchange ready to enroll uninsured New Mexicans in October and be fully operating by January.

    New Mexico's health insurance exchange website will not be ready for mass use on October 1st.

    Software takes time to debug and judging by New Mexico's other interactive websites people are in for an unbelievable, horrid mess. I don't have much doubt of this.

    The governor has dragged her feet on this for months. Of course, she will blame the Affordable Care Act when the correct political moment comes, so as to enhance her national standing in the GOP.

    It would have been much wiser to let the federal government provide our health insurance exchange instead of playing politics.
