Great news!!! Team Zero says the site will be fixed today!!!
And, according to WaPo, they’ll announce that it’s up and ready! Here’s some features!!
Still, though, it can only handle 50,000 users at a time. Moreover, the site still loads slowly and the capacity for 50,000 users hasn’t yet been fully tested.
They say the site will work for 80%–90% of the users. I don’t get that. What does that mean, exactly? Are there browser compatibility problems? Is it acceptable for this not to work for about 20-30 million people?
Of course, “SHOP” the program for small businesses isn’t going to work. Meh!!! Small businesses.
And, then there’s this ……
The Wall Street Journal reports that technical problems will still inhibit HealthCare.gov from verifying users’ identities and the transmission of accurate enrollment data to insurance providers. The fallout of the latter problem won’t be readily apparent until someone who has been told they are insured tries to visit a doctor or emergency room only to discover their insurer has no idea who they are.
Then, of course, actually paying for the insurance on the site hasn’t been built, yet.
But, other than that, the site’s fixed!!!! Yea!!!
They still have a dysfunctional system, but, at least it won’t go down now. Congratulations, guys and gals, you’ve now matched the ability of the average highschooler.
Something else funny.
Some reports claim that in order for ObamaCare to meet its March 30 enrollment goal of 7-plus million enrollees (this number is necessary to make the system financially viable), somewhere around 54,000 people must sign up daily. Currently, only around 7,000 enrollments are occurring daily.
How many did they say the site could handle?
Let the happy enrollment begin!!!
