The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the White House have been releasing multiple numbers in an attempt to show the federal health insurance exchange website, HealthCare.gov, is operating smoothly now. But how many of those data points really matter?
The updated HealthCare.gov website still has glitches, especially with back-end issues for insurers, so the Obama administration is implementing a temporary workaround to ensure insurance companies get paid, reported Reuters.
The Obama administration will announce later this month that 100,000 people signed up for health coverage through HealthCare.gov in November, for a quadrupling in enrollments from October's lower-than-expected 27,000 sign-ups, according to a person familiar with the federal health insurance exchange website.
Yesterday the Obama Administration announced that the federal Affordable Care enrollment website HealthCare.gov is working for most users and ready to handle a post-Thanksgiving traffic blitz.
However, as The Atlantic reported, the Obama administration, and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services in particular, can make healthcare reform implementation a success by take four actions.
With a perfect fix of HealthCare.gov nowhere in sight, some insurers are pushing for a shortcut to help them enroll people in health plans directly by accessing a federal platform that determines subsidy eligibility, according to The New York Times.
The Obama administration issued a final rule increasing parity between mental health and substance abuse disorder benefits and their medical and surgical counterparts in health insurance plans nationwide.
President Barack Obama apologized for Americans losing health plans, which insurers will cancel because they don't provide all the benefits required by the Affordable Care Act.
Amid reports of cancellation letters sent to members because plans don't meet healthcare reform's essential health benefits, lawmakers and state officials are pressuring insurers to allow members to retain their policies.
An NBC News investigation reported the Obama administration knew for at least three years that 40 percent to 67 percent of Americans would lose their insurance plans after passage of the Affordable Care Act, yet President Barack Obama repeatedly said people who liked their insurance could keep it.
