EPIC FAILURE: Insurers Getting Faulty Data From Obamacare U.S. Health Exchanges



Welcome to the train wreck of Obamacare that everyone knew it was. From Bloomberg News, Obamacare health exchanges are an unmitigated disaster. Not only did these clowns have three years to develop the exchanges, but how does ‘The One’ use web traffic as an excuse when he claimed there were 30 million uninsureds? But it gets worse if possible. Not only can’t individuals access the healthcare exchange web pages, as JWF opines “you may not even be covered even if you manage to sign up.” What a colossal clusterf*ck. But what else would you expect from Obama’s signature piece of legislation?


Insurers are getting faulty and incomplete data from the new U.S.-run health exchange, which may mean some Americans won’t be covered even after they sign up for an insurance plan.

While it’s not clear how widespread the problem is, the reports from industry consultants are the first hint that the technical troubles faced by consumers trying to enroll in health plans under the Affordable Care Act may also be hitting the insurers. The companies are receiving electronic files that can’t open or have so much missing information on new enrollees they’re unusable, the consultants said.

Some insurers have been forced to fix entries by hand, said Bob Laszewski, an insurance-industry consultant based in Arlington, Virginia.

“If we don’t see substantial improvement by the end of this week, then I would throw up the yellow flag,” said Dan Schuyler, a consultant advising states and insurers on the exchanges. “If we don’t see it in the next two to three weeks, it’s time for red flags. The concern is some people could get to Jan. 1, and not have coverage.”

Since the exchanges opened on Oct. 1, consumers have struggled to access the online marketplaces, which have been overwhelmed by millions of visitors.

      A safe expectation is that government dependents and
      all the other have-nots will eventually (with help from
      ACORN and ex-cons) get signed up. There will not be
      enough employed and wealthy signing up to pay for any
      of this train wreck, so the ‘government’ will have to steal
      and borrow more from the taxpayers to cover the ridiculous
      costs. Just another welfare entitlement program designed
      to enlarge government and a permanent underclass!

      The forehead tag should be permanent.

      This inexperienced community organizer trying to run a country when he has zero experience at running anything is a joke. He has certainly accomplished two things, neither good. They are: spend more money and create more debt with little to show for it and reduced the prestige of the Office of the President all over the world.

      The Democrats are solely responsible for the mess of legislation of the Obamacare debacle. A 2,300 page piece of legislation that no one can fully understand which produced another 10,000 pages of confusing regulations. Everyone who voted for this should be removed from office.

      The law was rescued by John Roberts when it reached the Supreme Court by declaring it a tax. Roberts is not authorized under the Constitution to write legislation, but that is exactly what happened. He needs to loose his job as well.

      The people are as mad at the government as I have ever witnessed in my lifetime. They will do something to put a stop to this legislation. I hope they can succeed without violence.

      A project the size of this cannot be made workable when an inexperienced idiot is running the show. Project management takes years to learn.

      Some Governors need to sue the feds and Obama in particular for all the waivers he has given to his buddies on wall street, unions and big business.
