CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Programmers and administrators are working overtime to iron out remaining kinks in Nevada's online health insurance exchange system before it opens for enrollment in about two weeks.

Officials with the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange told board members Thursday that testing has been a challenge and is behind schedule.

Because of that, efforts are focusing on fixing glitches that could hinder core functionality, leaving less urgent problems for later.

A Spanish-language portal won't be ready by Oct. 1. Other functions to sort plans by cost, prescriptions or providers also will be delayed.

State Budget Director Jeff Mohlenkamp got his first glimpse of the system during a demonstration Thursday. He says it's a good program but consumers will need a lot of hand holding to navigate their way through it.
