Obamacare website glitch erroneously tells thousands they are ineligible for coverage

dbTechno.com, March 24, 2014
A new glitch in the Obamacare website Healthcare.gov has blocked attempts by many low income citizens to sign up for health insurance. The administration was recently notified of a website error that was giving ?not eligible? notices to people with income only slightly above the poverty line. This was because the website was not referencing the correct year to assess the income information. It was using 2013 poverty line levels instead of the updated figures for 2014. The glitch occurred while customers were shopping for plans, but before they had officially applied. If a citizen had ignored the notice and attempted to apply anyway, the glitch would not have affected the determination of their claim.
