Less than a week before the “official” roll-out of Obamacare and the system is in a shambles.
Americans remain fearful and confused about the new law. Benefits and pricing still hasn’t been worked out. And worse, some of the state and territorial exchanges called for under the law are already on life support.
Can you say, “Epic fail?”
Per the Washington Post:
Just days away from launch, the District of Columbia’s health marketplace is announcing a pretty significant delay.
While the D.C. Health Link will launch a Web site on October 1, shoppers will not have access to the their premium prices until mid-November. The delay comes after the District marketplace discovered “a high error rate” in calculating the tax credits that low- and middle-income people will use to purchase insurance on the marketplace.
