Obamacare Web site continues to suffer problems

|By:, SA News Editor

Health insurers are continuing to receive error-strewn information from the government's HealthCare.gov Web site as the starting date for Obamacare coverage of January 1 draws closer.

However, the government maintains that the problems stem from data that was transferred to insurers in October and November, and that information passed over this month is accurate.

The government wants insurance companies to take a relaxed approach to the various deadlines and consumer coverage-issues that may crop up until all the kinks are ironed out, but whether the firms will comply is another matter.

Either way, bureaucratic chaos is expected to reign come the New Year.
