CNBC: Are Errors in Obamacare Code Fixable?

Obamacare code fixable?
MON 14 OCT 13 | 01:17 PM ET
CNBC's Bertha Coombs reports the government continues to make fixes to the Federal Exchange. One issue had to do with selecting security questions. "This has been resolved," says Michael Ricotta of Blue Fountain Media Development. He says the real problem is when one goes to actually apply, and having to do with storing the user's data.

the way the exchanges were built. very quick time line, appears that there are some really deep flaws there and the key question is when it will be fixed and no clear answer to that. certainly not from the obama administration. some of the fixes on the front end issues have been making it easier to get on to the system. i was able actually to create an account today in about five minutes on the federal exchange. and that's where there have been a lot. but then i got an error page which is what a lot of people keep encountering. to get to 7 million uninsured covered over the next six months on the exchanges the administration will have to sign up an average of 39,000 people a day. think of that. right now. analysts estimate in the first week the major insurers collectively saw roughly 5,000 new enrollees come through. many of the those applications according to one key insurance consultant came through and had errors that had to be corrected. if the applications aren't clean with accurate complete data, then there has to be some manual intervention. it's not that big of an issue. once we get those applications in large numbers there's no way the carriers will be able to handle that. a lot of people compare the rocky start of obama care to the launch of medicare part d back in 2006, but analysts say the federal exchange issues are far more complicated as aetna chairman and ceo put it here this morning on squawk box we're at a place where there's so much wrong, we won't really know how much is broken until it's fixed.

This is so close to "we don't know what's in it until we pass it"

Except one would expect that to have taken place midway in development, i.e., a year or more ago.

Who developed this system? Was this outsourced to a private firm?

Somehow, I suspect the code that determines that you owe a penalty will work flawlessly
