Some Early Obamacare Hiccups
Posted at 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 1
The health insurance exchanges in President Obama’s health care reform law are running into a number of hiccups on their first day.
NBC News reports that “Maryland’s site for enrolling people crashed early Tuesday morning… Spanish-language websites are not quite ready.”
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes that Wisconsin’s marketplace “is experiencing waits and other glitches… A separate early attempt to check the system by a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Monday found delays and other issues entering information through drop-down menus.”
CNN reports “entrepreneurs in the 35 exchanges being partly or fully run by the federal government won’t be able to complete their enrollment online until November 1.”
New York’s marketplace, NY State of Health, says it is experiencing log in issues after experiencing “2 million visits in the first 2 hours of the site launch.” However, the exchange’s Twitter feed is responding to every person who tweets about the issue and instructs them to enroll by phone.
