Key Element of HealthCare.gov Won’t Be Ready Until Mid January

An Obama-administration official announced that the portion of the Healthcare.gov system that would allow users to pay insurance companies with marketplace subsidies will not be available for another two months.

On a conference call, the official announced that the problem will not be fixed until mid January, well after the November 30 deadline the administration set for itself; It’s also after the approximate December 15 deadline for consumers hoping to be covered by the beginning of next year. The official added the repair effort has eliminated about “two-thirds of the high-tech bugs” that have plagued the website since its rollout last month, according to Reuters.

During the daily briefing, White House press secretary Jay Carney skirted questions on the topic, referring questions to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
