Can the Obamacare Website Really Be Fixed by the End of the Month?

No worries. The Healthcare.gov website that is a key component for Obamacare will be ready for prime time by Nov. 30. In fact, as Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said on Wednesday, the site is already able to handle "17,000 registrants per hour ... with almost no errors." 

Unfortunately, a little while later, Sebelius' optimism appeared to be undercut by one of her own employees. Julie Bataille, spokesperson with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, said that "the site is performing slowly" and that many users were having problems. 

Can the Obamacare website really be fixed by the end of this month? Or are the latest sunny forecasts another prelude to a storm?

Source: Healthcare.gov

A couple hundred problems
According to Sebelius, a "couple of hundred" problems needed to be resolved. She says that these issues will be fixed on time. Whether she's right depends largely on what kind of problems are in that mix.

A lot of attention has been placed on the performance issues. The Obama administration has brought in experts from some technology heavyweights, including Google, Oracle, and Red Hat. Jeffrey Zients, the White House official now overseeing the project to fix the problems, said the page load time for Healthcare.gov has now been reduced from eight seconds to one second.

That's just one type of problem affecting Healthcare.gov, though. According to memos from the team involved in the launch of Healthcare.gov, other issues plaguing the website included insurance plans not showing up, incorrect pricing for plans, and the skipping of key steps in the application process.

Security has also emerged as a major problem. Just three days before the launch of the Obamacare website, information technology staff warned CMS that security testing was incomplete, with a "level of uncertainty that can be deemed as a high risk." These fears were confirmed when a South Carolina man discovered that his personal information was shared with a person in another state. The federal government says this problem has now been fixed.

Perhaps the biggest issue to be resolved, though, is the exchange of enrollment information with insurers. Even if the website works perfectly, individuals can't gain coverage if insurance companies can't process the applications. The problems encountered so far have been quite interesting, with some applications incorrectly showing multiple spouses for applicants and as many as 6% of applications showing individuals as incarcerated when they really weren't.

Infinite number of monkeys
There are plenty of experts who doubt that all of these problems will be fixed in only three weeks. Massachusetts Institute of Technology lecturer Howard Anderson said that the current "tech surge" is like "having an infinite number of monkeys on an infinite number of code-making machines." 

Health-care policy guru Bob Laszewski thinks the team brought in to resolve the technical issues is strong. However, he also suspects that the progress made so far on the exchange of data with insurers is "nowhere near enough to be able to go to high-volume processing." 

John Engates, chief technology officer at cloud service provider Rackspace Hosting, thinks that some problems could be related to the various systems from which Healthcare.gov interacts. If that's the case, Engates said that it's a "giant integration problem" that could be difficult to fix quickly.

CBS News recently enlisted a technology expert to take a crack at testing the security of Healthcare.gov. The expert was given the user name of a CBS employee who signed up on the website. CBS reported that "within seconds" he was able to determine which security questions the employee used. This simple hack underscores the challenges that the team charged with fixing the Obamacare website have before them. 

Perhaps the most worrisome issue of all is the amount of testing needed to ensure that all of these fixes actually work. When asked in congressional hearings how much time was needed to test the Obamacare website functionality, Andrew Slavitt with UnitedHealth Group's (NYSE: UNH  ) unit that served as a major contractor on building the site said that "months would have been nice."

With the clock ticking and hundreds of issues still remaining, only days will be available for testing all of those issues. UnitedHealth's Quality Software Services is now leading the effort. Whether the company can compress months of testing into less than three weeks could determine the fate of the success of the Obamacare exchanges.

Anticipating a delay
Maybe the best way to answer the question of whether the Obamacare website will really be fixed by the end of the month is to look at the actions of companies with real money riding on the outcome. 

Humana (NYSE: HUM  ) has already cut its estimates by half of how many individuals will enroll. The large insurer said it is anticipating a delay of the open enrollment period for Americans to purchase insurance.

UnitedHealth, which is not only helping fix the website problems but is also participating in some state exchanges, seems to suspect a delay is afoot also. The company stated this week that it would cooperate with the federal government "if a decision is made to allow individuals more time to sign up." 

An extension of the open enrollment period shouldn't take a negative toll on the stocks of the big insurers. Insurance companies are lobbying, however, against suggestions to delay the mandate that individuals purchase insurance. Such an action could hurt WellPoint (NYSE: WLP  ) more than others. The nation's second-largest health insurer is participating in Obamacare exchanges in every state where it operates.

Pressure will probably mount to push back on the individual mandate, though, if the website problems aren't resolved by the end of the month. Only a few hundred problems, lots of cooks in the kitchen, and the small task of performing months of needed testing in a fraction of that time stand in the way. No worries.

    The administration seems to believe that the website is the problem with this law but they would be very wrong about that. Assuming they can eventually get this up and running it will be the abysmally, absurdly, expensive offerings that will apparent to the masses. The offerings provide less benefit, more out of pocket, obscenely higher premium costs and deductibles. They simply aren't what consumers want nor need. This will be the impetus behind a fierce November 2014 midterm election whereby the liberal democrats are going to pay for this debacle called 'Obamacare'........

    Young people operate in a crisis mode; if there is not a crisis they would rather do nothing but visit with friends they are not supposed to be with, drink what they are not supposed to drink, eat only when starving or junk food, treat money as though it were trash and give it away to a friend or buy junk with it. They have a brain that is not yet developed and it probably won't develop for years to come; some brains will never develop because of burn out. Girls think of boys and what is hung between their legs and boys think of girls and what is between their legs; both often think with these body parts. When they get sick it is an emergency or Mom and Dad take care of them. Trying to entice young people to do the right thing is almost impossible. This is a very big mistake that was made with the ACA.

    Also keep in mind that many young people, especially males, are out of work or have only part time employment and should qualify for Medicaid, but they will not apply because they are lazy and/or believe that anything that is free has attachments tied to it and they want nothing to do with it. Many young males try to apply for Medicaid and are turned away because they cannot prove that they are unemployed or disabled and are told they must get a medical evaluation; where is the money coming from to get a medical evaluation? This leads the young males to believe the program is for women.

    There are still a lot of problems with who can apply, where they can apply and what do they need to be qualified. I am aware of one male that is unemployed, is medically not able to work that was told he has to get a medical evaluation (to get a medical evaluation, the hospital wants over $200.00 up front for the evaluation. Where does he get the money? He gives up and stays on the list as one that doesn’t apply) before they will give him Medicaid. The workers in the field are either not knowledgeable or they are discouraging young people from applying. Training and guidance is needed in the field; not just at the federal level.

    Even if it gets fixed, the 14 million people that need insurance by 12/31/13 can't possibly get online and signed up and processed in just 30 days. Maybe a fraction can, probably way under just one million. And unlike things like the introduction of Social Security and its difficulties in which checks people had never gotten before were delayed, 12/31 is a hard date as that is when the current insurance of millions and millions of people terminates. That is a hard date, and Obamacare will kill a lot of people, probably tens of thousands if not more, because their treatments will not be available. Think any of the Democrats that voted for Obamacare will win re-election when thousands of people show up telling how their spouse died because of Obamacare? The Republicans don't need to kill Obamacare, it is already dead. Unfortunately, it is talking a whole lot of people with it to its grave.

    Just as an aside, he's doing the same thing with immigration "reform", saying that granting amnesty to 12 million illegals and allowing them to bring in another 10 million or so family members, will be "a boost to the economy and help pay down the deficit". If you can't get your head around the math that says poor people don't pay taxes, and we will subsidize their health care and education, you might consider that every other country in the world disagrees with him.
