Health Tradition Says What's The Problem

A senior health official this week said that the insurance exchange,

HealthCare.gov, is still unable to perform one of its basic functions: making it easy for Americans to enroll in Medicaid electronically. Days before the exchange opened three weeks ago, the administration said that feature was not ready but would be available by November 1st, at the latest.

 

Steve Kunas at Health Tradition Health Plan in La Crosse says he was not phased by the website having the problems it's had so far.

Only 4 of those plans have been bought since October 1st.

 

In a separate lingering problem, officials at the Health and Human Services Department confirmed that the enrollment portion of the Spanish language version of the online exchange was not working, despite assurances in September that it would be ready by this week.
