Overloads arise with 34 states using one health exchange site

October 4, 2013

The Obama administration’s health care rollout may have been rockier than expected this week because so many states refused to cooperate, leaving the federal government to run far more exchanges than initially planned, according to analysts studying the Affordable Care Act.

And the intense interest from researchers, journalists and market analysts actually may be preventing some customers from being able to access the websites set up to help consumers navigate the health exchanges.

“Every insurance company in the country wants to know what everyone else is doing,” said Dan Mendelson, CEO of Avalere Health, a Washington-based advisory company.

Three days after the exchanges went live, reports continued to surface of major interest from potential customers, but also of technical glitches the federal government said it was working to correct.

As written, the Affordable Care Act allows states to choose whether to set up their own exchanges or have the federal government do it for them.

      Idiot! The screw up is the Red states not giving a damn about their constituents and leaving it up to the feds.
      The only bad thing about the ACA is that it isn’t single payer and leaves the private insurance companies involved and making a profit. We’re the only first world country that does that and our health care costs nearly twice as much as the next most expensive country with the result that we have the worst outcomes in the first world and have results worse than Cuba and Costa Rica among other third world countries. We rank 37 th in overall outcome and 42nd in infant mortality.
      You need to get beyond ideology and find real facts. Hint, this is not where you will find truth.
