So, this past summer we noted that during last year's Open Enrollment season, the Government Accounting Office (GAO) had successfully registered almost a dozen fake Exchange accounts, complete with subsidies and insurance policy purchases.
We're happy to report that all of these problems have now been fixed, and...
"[F]ederal watchdog office did set up 10 phony insurance coverage accounts with no pushback from those overseeing the applications."
They set up the "sting" to see if last year's experiences had borne fruit, in the form of "plugging up" the obvious HIX holes. And of course, the rocket surgeons running it are still failing.
