Ills of Errors in ObamaCare website forms spark concerns

December 7, 2013

The Obama administration announced Friday that enrollment records for one in four Americans who selected health plans on in October and November could contain errors, raising concerns that consumers who think they have coverage won’t actually be enrolled on Jan. 1.

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services spokeswoman Julie Bataille said recent fixes to have brought the error rate on forms sent to insurance companies down to about one in 10 for files generated after Dec. 1, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The electronic files, known as 834 forms, give insurance companies basic information about would-be customers, including their name, address, contact information and Social Security number. Insurance companies have reported issues with the files since the law’s rollout.

“The new process put in place this week is making a difference. The enrollment files are getting better, but there is more work to do to ensure consumers are covered,” Karen Ignani, the chief executive officer of insurance industry trade group, America’s Health Insurance Plans, said in a statement obtained by the New York Post on Friday.

    Maybe if they hired a competent *American* company to build it, they wouldn’t have this problem. Heck, I could probably build them what they want for a fraction of what they paid *and* it would actually work. But Democrats don’t care about wasting taxpayer money, since they’ll just raise taxes some more. As long as their buddies get money, they don’t give a damn if they’re actually serving the American people like they’re supposed to. They ought to hire a working mom to do government budgets, since they are experts in stretching a dollar and getting the most for their money.
