Obamacare Exchanges Sending Erroneous Data to Insurers

One man signs up for three insurance plans


NewLettersObamacare exchanges are sending erroneous data to insurers.

Health insurers are reporting that Obamacare is sending flawed data to them that includes: duplicate enrollments, spouses reported as children, missing data fields and suspect eligibility determinations. The flawed data is making it difficult for insurers to handle the small amount of people that have been able to sign up for health insurance. Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Nebraska had to hire temporary employees to called new customers so that it could sort out the mistakes in their insurance plans and Medical Mutual of Ohio claims that it had one customer that signed up for three different plans, reports Market Watch.

Obamacare has been experiencing glitches and errors since it launched, but the White House has assured the public that it is fixing these problems. The glitches with the Obamacare website have been bad enough that no one in Hawaii was able to sign up for insurance as of Oct. 11 and very few people were able to sign up in other states.
