More than 330,000 applicants for government health insurance have been able to find out how much financial assistance they will receive in purchasing a private insurance plan, according to IRS numbers provided to the Health and Human Services website Saturday.

Consumers receive that information after filing an application, which the administration said Friday numbered nearly 700,000 for both federal and state insurance exchanges.

The White House has said that it will not release the number of people who actually enroll in the health-law programs until next month.

I tried to get health insurance. The program was always saying that is I had any part of Medicare A or B service that I would not be eliglible for health insurance. So I am not insured!!! Terry

Yes, and I have had insurance and now have had it canceled because of the ACA.  I won't get a subsidy (I don't care), but  I don't know if I will be able to get insurance because of the broken California site.   So, for now, I WAS insured, now I AM uninsured!

Yep, I'm one of "those people" that got a letter from HHS saying I would get assistance.  H O W E V E R, everytime I log in and try to see the health plans, the system tells me to fill out an application.  Do not pass GO do not collect $200.  THE SYSTEM IS STILL BROKEN ..... HELLO!

I did, on day two. And it's a terrific deal for me. I look at all the headlines and shrug - it sucks to be in a red state, apparently some will have to be patient until the massive thing settles in and gets de-glitched, and people are wildly confused (and deliberately misinformed) about how it works and for whom, but in a year or two it'll be as much a part of our lives as Social Security and Medicare. And those histrionic, dishonest Republicans will be long lost in the dust.

Bull$hit, the online system is still down.  How many people have actually selected an insurance plan?  Application and eligibility requirements means nothing.  Get the insurance is the goal.

At this rate it will take nearly four years for all legible Americans to sign up.

They don't have to say, they can just hold up the fingers on their hand.

Health Care Site Glitches, ACA Site Glitches Outrage,Really.....


In the months following the Implementation, with big problems, of the Medicare Part 'D' Expansion
Rep. Joe Barton (R) Texas: "This is a huge undertaking and there are going to be glitches" - Feb 15 2006

Rep. Joe Barton (R) Texas: "I would hope that we can work together as we go through the implementation phase....if we can make some changes to fix it, let us do it and let us do it on a bipartisan basis" - March 1 2006

Republican Rep. Nathan Deal, now the governor of Georgia, cautioned critics that "most significant programs" have problems early on, and that's no reason to give up on them.

"Like most significant programs, the new benefit has not gone without a few isolated glitches and unexpected problems," he said at the same hearing. "But I believe that if there is anything wrong with the plan, most of it has been fixed and that that hasn't can be fixed over time."

"Any time something is new, there is going to be some glitches," Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) said on April 6, 2006. "No matter what one does in life, when it is something new in learning the ropes of it, it is going to take a little adjustment."

Boehner's office denies that the two situations are similar.

"Medicare Part D is a sound, popular program that faced some technical problems when it began," an aide to the Speaker, who requested anonymity, said on Thursday. "The ACA is fundamentally flawed, and the problems with the website are just the tip of the iceberg."

Thing is Barton and the others are right, as to '06, and had Dems helping in fixing the Part 'D' roll out problems to make it a popular policy, That's what they're paid to do, whether they like a policy or not. And also why they have hearings, not moot court proceedings that are purely political and show they don't represent the American people but do their special interests groups, or just plain political ideology no matter how extreme!!!!!

@FreeToSpeakOut Not always - you may get stuck with choices that give you a better plan for about the same, or less, or with a subsidy...  what a terrible thing that is. People are commenting without first hand experience, it's the rumor mill of all rumor mills.

@paulejb And who do you want to pay for medical care for the poor? Just "somebody else"? Hospitals? Doctors? What happens to your medical costs that way? Or are you in the "let 'em die" camp? Including, say, your hardworking neighbor who lost his job and just fell off the roof or got a CA diagnosis? Or are they all drug-addicted lazy criminals in your addled mind?
