Expect More Tech Glitches in Year Two of Obamacare, Official Says

Producers haven’t seen the back of the technological glitches that plagued the inaugural year of health insurance exchange site—at least not yet.

That’s the message from one Obama administration official this week, as the country’s health insurance agents and clients gear up for this year’s open enrollment process. Andy Slavitt, the principal deputy administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) told Congress the site “won’t be perfect” in November, nor “fully ready.”

“It’s a bumpy process at times,” admitted the former UnitedHealth Group executive during a congressional hearing. “We’ve got committed people who by-and-large are doing a good job. There will certainly be bumps.”
