Obamacare: Insurers report multiple errors with the people who have actually been able to sign up for healthcare on the exchanges
The problems with the Obamacare roll out have been well documented by the blogoshere yet little reported by the mainstream media, which found a convenient distraction in the government shutdown–a shutdown which nobody was affected by other than the non-essential government workers and those whom the president chose purposely to hurt–but now that the shutdown is over we are starting to see more reports trickle out about how bad Obamacare is already turning out to be.
We all have read the stories in the blogoshpere of people not being able to navigate the website and having problems enrolling in mandated coverage, but the problems go much deeper for it turns out the people who are unable to sign up on the healthcare exchanges may be the lucky ones. Obamacare isn’t as bad as we thought it was, it is worse and it is only just beginning.
Insurers say the federal health-care marketplace is generating flawed data that is straining their ability to handle even the trickle of enrollees who have gotten through so far, in a sign that technological problems extend further than the website traffic and software issues already identified.
So, what are the problems?
Emerging errors include duplicate enrollments, spouses reported as children, missing data fields and suspect eligibility determinations, say executives at more than a dozen health plans.
The glitches are so bad that one state actually had to hire temporary workers in order to help resolve all the problems and that is really saying something considering so few people have been able to sign up to date. Barack Obama claimed that the Affordable Care Act would create jobs, apparently these are the jobs he was talking about.
This proves once again that there is no problem so great that the government cannot make it worse…..
