Obamacare Reaches Major Milestone

“Federal health officials said they have completed the ‘data hub,’ a complex system that will verify people’s Social Security numbers, immigration status and other information when they log on to government Web sites to buy health plans and apply for government subsidies,” the Washington Post reports.

“The computer system must also ensure people receive only benefits to which they are entitled based on their income and other factors. If it works properly, the system will be able to fact-check parts of a person’s application in real time.”

“Critics have raised concerns about the hub, in part because so much of the work is being done at the last minute… But administration officials said they submitted the hub to rigorous security tests required under federal law, such as ensuring that only qualified people have access to the information it contains.”
