Health insurance exchange confusion? Not so in Washington. The state website, wahealthplanfinder.org, gets a boost in the national news, recognized as a successful counterpoint to the federal website, which has been mired in technical difficulties since its Oct. 1 start. Thus far 49,000 people have enrolled in the Washington exchange and 92,000 more have started an application on the site, which allows people to browse options without creating an account.
