Massachusetts Prepares to Abandon Obamacare Site

The Hill: “Massachusetts is preparing to abandon its troubled ObamaCare website, a system so problematic that the state was forced to enroll tens of thousands of people in temporary insurance plans through Medicaid.”

“Massachusetts officials are pursuing what they described as a “dual-track strategy” for their insurance marketplace, combining new, off-the-shelf enrollment software with a back-up plan to shift the system into HealthCare.gov if the transition takes too long.”

“Prior to Monday’s announcement, Massachusetts officials had considered rebuilding instead of replacing the website. They are now planning to use hCentive, a software product used to build insurance exchanges in Colorado and Kentucky.”

    Misleading headline. MA is not abandoning the healthcare.gov website, but the state’s website for its own insurance exchange.
