As the Obama administration raced to meet its self-imposed deadline for online health insurance markets, security experts working for the government worried that state computer systems could become a back door for hackers.
The Obama administration said late Tuesday that 4 million Americans have selected a private health plan under Obamacare.
House Republicans on Thursday once again tried to shine a bright light on Obamacare’s problems and possible security flaws, as Obama administration officials admitted they were wrong about the HealthCare.gov website’s readiness but said the warning signs weren’t strong enough to convince them to delay the rollout.
An Obama administration official who supervised the balky rollout of the health care law is retiring, the nation's Medicare agency said Monday.
The Obama administration says more than 1 million people have signed up for private insurance through the federal marketplace, a December-heavy surge in enrollment following the disastrous launch of HealthCare.gov that began in October and bled into November.
The Obama administration said Tuesday more than 25 million people on traditional Medicare received at least one free preventive care service during the first 11 months of this year because of the new health care law.
A new report from a consulting firm indicates the White House was warned of Obamacare rollout glitches as far back as the spring — a significant claim, given the administration's insistence that the president wasn't aware of any problems until after the enrollment website went active.
Sen. Tom Harkin said Tuesday that lawmakers should take a deep breath and realize the health care law may offer a lifeline to those who need it most, even if the HealthCare.gov website that links many Americans to coverage is in dire straits.
President Obama's point person in implementing the new health care law assured senators Tuesday that the federal Obamacare website is salvageable and secure, even as her agency acknowledged it had to fix software code after a man in North Carolina reported he stumbled upon another man's personal information.
Marilyn Tavenner, President Obama's point woman in implementing the new health care law, told Congress on Tuesday the new health care law is salvageable and that repairs to the federal Obamacare website will coincide with an expected rush of enrollees by early December, even as GOP lawmakers declare Obamacare a failure.
House Republicans suspect the White House has more Obamacare data than it is letting on, sparking a tug of war that is playing out amid fears that Medicaid enrollment could far outpace requests for private insurance under President Obama's program.
House Republicans suspect the White House has more Obamacare data than they're letting on, a tug-of-war that's playing out amid new fears Medicaid enrollment could far outpace requests for private insurance under President Obama's program.
Medicare paid $23 million for dead patients in 2011 and $29 million for drug benefits for illegal immigrants from 2009 to 2011, according to a report Thursday from the Health and Human Services inspector general.
President Obama's top health official admitted to Congress on Wednesday that Obamacare's main website faces a litany of problems, including the delivery of inaccurate data to insurers and glitches that do not allow uninsured Americans to enroll, resulting in a "miserably frustrating experience for way too many Americans."
The head of the agency in charge of the new health care law apologized Tuesday to people who've tried to use the flawed federal Obamacare website, but she said she still has faith that the site will be working for most Americans by the end of November.
"Most of our work from April until the fall will be spent improving the consumer experience," said Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
She said the agency will develop a "more consumer friendly application, one that's a little easier to navigate."
