The White House has been indicating that Healthcare.gov is basically fixed. But is it possible that we’d get inaccurate information out of the White House. The People’s House?
Well, as readers of this website know, the answer is . . . all the time!
I’ve already let you know about Healthcare.gov’s continuing woes. The payment system is all screwed up, among other things.
I recently spoke with a source who used to run teams of IT geeks. This person told me these issues on the “back end” are almost impossible to fix, remarking that officials are probably at this point manually – that’s right, one at a time – performing functions.
It’s the insurers – looking to get paid, to figure out who signed up, and so forth – who have to deal with these continuing issues. And here they are at a congressional hearing today, acknowledging, sheepishly, since they don’t want to anger their masters in the federal government, that the website is NOT FIXED.
