David Gilbert says he sent his $825 check to Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in early December. It was supposed to ensure that the Voluntown man would have health insurance by the start of this year.

That means Gilbert has been unable to get an insurance ID card, which he needs for a referral to an orthopedist.

He’s starting to wonder if he’ll ever get the coverage he thought he bought.

Gilbert is one of many Connecticut residents who signed up for Anthem plans through the state’s health insurance exchange but are still struggling to get their coverage set up.
