The Harder Obama Admin Tries to Cover Up ObamaCare Failure, the More Incompetent They Appear

As if they could be MORE incompetent than they are already!


ObamaCare Was Built Using Outdated Technology

Technology Experts Are Claiming That The ObamaCare Exchange Was Constructed “Using 10-Year-Old Technology That May Require Constant Fixes And Updates For The Next Six Months.” “The federal health care exchange was built using 10-year-old technology that may require constant fixes and updates for the next six months and the eventual overhaul of the entire system, technology experts told USA TODAY.” (Kelly Kennedy, “Tech Experts: Health Exchange Site Needs Total Overhaul,” USA Today, 10/17/13)
  • “The Application Could Be Fundamentally Flawed … They May Be Using 1990′s Technology In 2.0 World.” “‘The application could be fundamentally flawed,’ said Jeff Kim, president of CDNetworks, a content-delivery network. ‘They may be using 1990s technology in 2.0 world.’” (Kelly Kennedy, “Tech Experts: Health Exchange Site Needs Total Overhaul,” USA Today, 10/17/13)
     
  • Health Care Executive: “This Is Very Early Web 1.0 Type Of Fix.” “‘I have never seen a website – in the last five years – require you to delete the cache in an effort to resolve errors,’ said Dan Schuyler, a director at Leavitt Partners, a health care group by former Health and Human Services secretary Mike Leavitt. ‘This is a very early Web 1.0 type of fix.’” (Kelly Kennedy, “Tech Experts: Health Exchange Site Needs Total Overhaul,” USA Today, 10/17/13)
“Outsiders … Said They Feared HHS Built A System That Will Need An Expensive Overhaul.” “Outsiders acknowledged they can’t see the whole system, but they said they feared HHS built a system that will need an expensive overhaul that would cause more headaches for people trying to buy insurance.” (Kelly Kennedy, “Tech Experts: Health Exchange Site Needs Total Overhaul,” USA Today, 10/17/13)

Nearly Three Weeks Since ObamaCare’s Launch, The Administration Continues To Send Faulty Enrollment Data To Insurers

Insurers Continue To Get Flawed Data, “In A Sign That Technological Problems Extend Further Than Website Traffic And Software Issues Already Identified.”“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.” (Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky, “Health Website Woes Widen As Insurers Get Wrong Data,” The Wall Street Journal, 10/18/13)
  • “Errors Include Duplicate Enrollments, Spouses Reported As Children, Missing Data Fields And Eligibility Determinations.” “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. Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Nebraska said it had to hire temporary workers to contact new customers directly to resolve inaccuracies in submissions. Medical Mutual of Ohio said one customer had successfully signed up for three of its plans.” (Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky, “Health Website Woes Widen As Insurers Get Wrong Data,” The Wall Street Journal, 10/18/13)
“The Flaws Could Do Lasting Damage To” ObamaCare. “The flaws could do lasting damage to the law if customers are deterred from signing up or mistakenly believe they have obtained coverage.” (Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky, “Health Website Woes Widen As Insurers Get Wrong Data,” The Wall Street Journal, 10/18/13)

The Faulty Data Problems Continue To Go Unfixed

October 8, 2013: “Insurers Are Getting Faulty And Incomplete Data” From The Exchanges. “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.” (Drew Armstrong and Alex Nussbaum, “Insurers Getting Faulty Data From U.S. Health Exchanges,” Bloomberg, 10/8/13)
“Each Night, Healthcare.Gov Is Supposed To Send A Batch Of New Enrollments To The Insurers. Called ’834 Files,’ The Data Have Long Been An Industry Standard In The Private Sector.” (Drew Armstrong and Alex Nussbaum, “Insurers Getting Faulty Data From U.S. Health Exchanges,” Bloomberg, 10/8/13)
  • Insurers That Receive ObamaCare Enrollee Data Have To Fix The Faulty Files, Potentially Creating A Large Backup. “To fix the files, insurers have to go through them by hand. When thousands of people sign up, as the U.S. is hoping will happen before mid-December, it may create a large backup, the two consultants said.” (Drew Armstrong and Alex Nussbaum, “Insurers Getting Faulty Data From U.S. Health Exchanges,” Bloomberg, 10/8/13)
Amongst The Files Insurers Are Receiving, Some Are Unable To Be Opened “Or Have So Much Missing Information On New Enrollees They’re Unusable.” “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.” (Drew Armstrong and Alex Nussbaum, “Insurers Getting Faulty Data From U.S. Health Exchanges,” Bloomberg, 10/8/13)

As The Administration Remains Tight-Lipped Over ObamaCare Problems, Allies Are Becoming Frustrated With Its Roll-Out

ObamaCare Supporters Are Becoming “Frustrated By The Lack Of Answers From The Administration.” “Supporters of the law said they were frustrated by the lack of answers from the administration. ‘I wish they would explain what the technical problems are and how they intend to fix them,’ said Timothy Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University and a longtime defender of the overhaul.” (Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky, “Health Website Woes Widen As Insurers Get Wrong Data,” The Wall Street Journal, 10/18/13)
HHS Has “Repeatedly Declined To Answer Specific Questions” About ObamaCare’s Disastrous Rollout. “HHS, which is running all or part of the marketplaces in 36 states, has repeatedly declined to answer specific questions about its handling of the rollout, including specific glitches, enrollment figures, or its plans to fix the problems.” (Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky, “Health Website Woes Widen As Insurers Get Wrong Data,” The Wall Street Journal, 10/18/13)
  • HHS Has Also “Pressured Insurers To Refrain From Commenting Publicly About The Problems.” “Health-department officials have pressured insurers to refrain from commenting publicly about the problems, according to executives at four health plans, who asked not to be named. The HHS declined to comment.” (Christopher Weaver and Louise Radnofsky, “Health Website Woes Widen As Insurers Get Wrong Data,” The Wall Street Journal, 10/18/13)
Why is it that no one has been fired yet?
