Well Obama told NPR yesterday there would be some glitches…
Probably more than he expected
I got on and it was a mess. It had some security questions to be answered but the pull-down menu didn’t have any actual questions. I couldn’t go any further, so I got on the “live chat” and waited for an hour before I was bumped off with a message — “We hope we have answered your questions. Have a Great Day!”
It’s tempting, but I’m trying not to feel too triumphant about this. Web sites can be fixed. What can not be fixed are the prices and OOP charges that will make for very poor value for most consumers.
I wonder if they are considered nonessential employees so no one is running the web site
The System is down at the moment
Hey, that’s the first honest statement bureaucrats have said about the ObamaCare Exchange!
It’s actually quite poetic
Dr. Goodman, I know you have quite a few Texans that watch this board, so I thought I ‘d post the results of my “first day” search (and yeah, the exchange site, is down, of course).
So, for those in an equivalent position to mine (currently fully insured through the individual marketplace in a non-compliant plan) here’s the info I got from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas: They are extending the non-compliant plans through the end of 2014, and will use the same actuarial pricing method as was previously employed. There’ll be a letter at some point detailing options for the compliant plans, but they wouldn’t commit to when that would be sent. For my individual situation, looks like a 40% increase from the current premium rate to the cheapest compliant plan, but we’ll see when everything rolls over. Hope that is helpful to someone.

I haven’t even started to assess my options. Not exactly looking forward to it.
Obamacare, the system is down. Please try again later.

Blue screen of death for everyone
I have read the material from OPM about Multi-State Plans, which are supposed to be similar to the “Public Option,” in that they are intended to provide competition in the Exchanges.
I noticed in Texas that Blue Cross has 5 different Multi-State Plans.
Anyone have any information on how these plans are to provide “competition” in the Exchanges?
One of your best blog articles. I will send along to many others.
