Ninety-Nine Percent of Federal Exchange Applications are Defective

“As few as 1 in 100 applications on the federal exchange contains enough information to enroll the applicant in a plan,” according to CNBC.
“That means the people in every batch who haven’t provided enough or correct information must be contacted for additional data to ensure they qualify for the insurance they want to buy, experts said. The federal exchange itself may have to seek that data from enrollees.”
The “problem appears to be limited to Healthcare.gov, which is handling plans for people in 36 states, not the exchanges being operated individually by the 14 other states and the District of Columbia.”
