Obamacare Non-Help Line

Did you buy an #Obamacare plan through the #exchange? Have you received your policy or ID
cards yet? Washington, we may have a problem.
Thousands of Americans who have asked the federal government to fix errors on their Obamacare applications aren’t likely to get solutions anytime soon, according to internal government data obtained by The Washington Post.
Some 22,000 Americans have filed appeals over errors made while applying for health coverage on, the website for Obamacare’s federal exchange, the newspaper reported. Those errors have included being pushed into the wrong program, receiving incorrect subsidies or insurance payments, and being denied coverage entirely.
Hey. Mistakes happen. Should be easy to correct, right?
But’s system won’t allow federal workers to go into enrollment records and make any changes to the applications. Washington Post reporter Amy Goldstein wrote. “The Obama administration has not made public the fact that the appeals system for the online marketplace is not working,” the story said, noting that the administration is more focused on other parts of that don’t work, such as the payment processing system.
Sounds like the Russians built the system.
Maybe they did . .
U.S. intelligence agencies last week urged the Obama administration to check its new healthcare network for malicious software after learning that developers linked to the Belarus government helped produce the website, raising fresh concerns that private data posted by millions of Americans will be compromised.
The intelligence agencies notified the Department of Health and Human Services, the agency in charge of the network, about their concerns last week. Specifically, officials warned that programmers in Belarus, a former Soviet republic closely allied with Russia, were suspected of inserting malicious code that could be used for cyber attacks, according to U.S. officials familiar with the concerns. 
As my friend Henry says, Oy!
