Two months ago, Healthcare.gov was declared ‘fixed.’ Today, the website Obama created is still riddled with problems for Americans. It just goes to show that the ‘fix’ was a lie. Or that the ‘fix’ was only temporary, and the website still can’t handle hundreds of thousands of people logging on at once.
Health insurance expert Bob Laszewski described it this way:
Many consumers who have waited months to resolve insurance application issues on HealthCare.gov are finally getting help, but some are still stuck in limbo without Medicaid or insurance coverage, and many of the site’s most vexing problems remain, according to insurers, brokers and state Medicaid officials. Applications that take days, clueless customer service representatives and error-ridden or orphan files persist...Insurers report the files they get about enrollments still sometimes can’t be matched with clients, creating “orphan” records. And the National Association of State Medicaid Directors’ Matt Salo says Medicaid-eligible people who have been bounced back and forth from HealthCare.gov to states are now being told just to enroll through their states. That’s because the process of transferring files to states is still fraught with problems on both sides. Robert Zirkelbach of trade group America’s Health Insurance Plans says insurers are trying to implement the new policies as seamlessly as possible but are still stymied by glitches. “There are still some technical challenges that need to be addressed, including processes are being done manually that need to be automated,” Zirkelbach says.
So it just goes to show that the problems are NOT fixed, and won’t be fixed for some time. In addition, Obama’s approval ratings and the ratings for his health care plan/exchange continue to plummet.
This is why he is so desperate to have young people, Latinos, and other target audiences sign up as soon as possible. He’s desperate to save face and his reputation.
