After trying to enroll in healthcare.gov for a week (Tennessee), It's still dysfunctional. Errors, time outs, page down for traffic, page down for upgrade. Registration complete. Registration not complete. Each visit requires answering the same questions over and over again. Many calls with no luck. Operators are clueless.

Today I call and I get this nice lady who tried hard, but isn't getting any worthwhile support, imv.

First, I ask if she, or anyone else, can determine if my application is visible to to them. After an hour on the phone, she gives me the phone number of TennCare-Mediaid. Keep in mind that I didn't select TennCare. In fact I've never got to the point of actually viewing my choices of coverage.

It was surreal, like I was the help desk. She kept asking me for answers. I could tell she was writing down my questions, only to put me on hold while she asked someone else. She looked for an email that they had received, something about passwords not working after the latest upgrade. Clueless.

Evidently, somebody decided I was eligible for state benefits. I told the young lady that I knew of no plan in Tennessee. I know Tennessee decided against expanding medicaid. Anyway, I advised the person that I would call TennCare. But jesus fricking christ, WILL SOMEONE SELL ME A GOD DAMN POLICY?

I call the TennCare number and was told that the only plan for disabled folks was SSI. I don't qualify for SSI. Back to square one. How much longer do they play this charade. It's not getting better. Pull the plug on this mess. Obviously, they never tested it before going live. A fatal error, imv.

I'm going to try again, but this time I will register over the phone. Sebelius blew it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

              Maybe going in every five minutes and mucking with it rather than being patient is part of the problem.

              I finally got in the other night. Can't get much further, because my state also didn't set up their own exchanges. I also have a two state policy, since my 21 year old son is on my current policy, and now lives in KY. But I understand that it isn't going to be easy.

              I'll wait.

              I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

        MILLIONS of Americans are. You qualify for expanded Medicaid, at or below 133% of Federal poverty, but your state chose not to accept the Medicaid expansion. To be honest, I don't know how that is going to work. Will you be allowed to buy a policy and qualify for a subsidy as if your income was actually 134% of poverty? You might want to do a little research on this outside of trying to enroll. From the news coverage I have heard, you may be caught in a terrible disaster NOT of POTUS or Sebelius' making, but one deliberately created by your red state.

            If you have SSDI, then you have Medicare. So you already have health insurance, and you are definitely NOT eligible to buy another policy through the exchanges. Also, if your SSDI benefits are 21k/year, you should count your lucky stars. That is FAR above the average SSDI benefit. That is extraordinarily high for SSDI.

            To repeat: SSDI/Medicare beneficiaries CANNOT buy a different policy on the exchanges. The law is clear on this.

          It is my understanding that if you qualify for expanded medicaid, you are unable to get any subsidy.  If your state has chosen not to accept the medicaid expansion, you can still buy insurance on the exchanges, but are not eligible for a subsidy or tax credit.  You do, however, get a waiver from the mandate that you purchase insurance.

        You say you can't work and have a pre-existing condition and yet you want to "pull the plug" on this whole mess.

        Then what are your options?  If you honestly think by pulling the plug and scrapping the program it will result in something better for you, fine.  Give me the evidence, either on your state level or at the Federal level that this is the case.  If we scrap it, will you be able to then buy insurance with your pre-existing condition?  If we scrap it will your state suddenly fund a high risk pool to help people like you?  If we scrap it will Congress immediately take up another version of health reform and pass it in record-setting time....maybe the GOP plan that essentially consists of tort reform, health savings accounts and selling insurance across state lines? (insurance which I'm quite certain won't cover those with pre-existing conditions.)

        So sure, let's give it a try.  Your situation is unlikely to change, but at least it will give you something new to write about since criticism of the scrapped ACA will no longer be an option.

            Just out of curiosity, did you ever direct any of your outrage to the State of Tennessee? The state exchanges are certainly not without their flaws and some are not yet processing full applications either.

            But particularly with a state like Tennessee (which is not big), it would seem it could have managed a state exchange just as well as Kentucky - with a few glitches but overall pretty decent administration.

            I'm breaking my own rule again about should have/could have, but I just wonder how much better the system could have run if all the states had been as fully committed to helping their people as Kentucky's governor.

    That said can we please fire the contractor who developed the website and the management who oversaw it. The website is an inexcusable failure and we cannot pretend that it is not.

    FYI - We did after many days of trying see the rates and our family will save $10,000 a year. Not because the rates are cheap but because the insurance companies were totally ripping us off

        ...one state per day; if they'd gone alphabetically, they would have had a solid week to work the kinks out with a (relatively) low volume before hitting a big state:

        Alabama, Alaska, Arizona and Arkansas are all relatively low-population.

        California, Colorado, Connecticut and Delaware are all state-run exchanges.

        That means they wouldn't have hit Florida on the federal site until tomorrow.

          ....would have had serious software issues, but at least they wouldn't have to deal with the massive overload of traffic at the same time that they were trying to fix the issues.

    •  My Rates Dropped $300/month (6+ / 0-)

      I'm staying with my same insurer and staying on the equivalent plan, but the new version of the plan is now $300/month cheaper, has no deductable, and covers more.

      I'm not really surprised at the technical problems. The tech end of this is a lot harder than most people realize and probably harder than the people building it realized at the outset.

      Disastrous rollouts are not that uncommon in the tech world, but most companies can always push the release date back when they realize they're in over their head... can't do that with the ACA's exchanges.

  •  I will agree about one thing: At this point... (3+ / 0-)

    ...the HHS Dept. should be releasing daily numbers about exactly how many people have 1) visited the various sites (both state and federal); 2) created accounts; and 3) actually signed up for policies through the sites, broken down by state.

    Even if the signup numbers prove to be miniscule (a few thousand, a few hundred, even a few dozen), it's still better at this point to be up front and honest about that information.

    Yes, they can include the caveats about busy servers, software bugs and especially most people just kicking the tires/window shopping for now...but do release the numbers.

    Besides, if those number do turn from a trickle into a torrent, that'll look even better from a "dramatic chart" PR perspective than sitting silently for 6 months and then saying "Yes, X million have signed up" after the signup period is over.

  •  Just in case anyone wonders... (7+ / 0-)

    There have been 9400 enrolled in Obamacare in WA state. I read it this morning in the local paper. I know some people were curious as to the numbers. I have no idea if this is on track with their expectations but there it is.

  •  One more point about enrollment (5+ / 0-)

    Many hospitals around the country also have ACA enrollment programs targeting those without insurance who are coming to their facilities for services.  So while the website is a key tool and fixing the software issues will certainly aid enrollment, it is not the only method or approach being used.

  •  Dude. I feel the annoyance too, I've hit all of (6+ / 0-)

    the errors, I see the programming and systems design malpractice.

    But seriously, do you need to write one of these diaries every day?  How about waiting til something actually really changes, and just leave it as assumed that until then things are still snafu?

    a dialog box that told me that they needed to access other agencies for verification.

    Those agencies, to the best of my memory, were DHS, IRS, SSA, USPS, and Credit reporting agencies. I'm sure that's just the tip of the iceberg.

    It's not just a tiny little shopping cart website that they can control. It's a huge conglomeration of just about every agency and supporting systems in existence.

    BE PATIENT

    I have had to call twice, my issues still aren't resolved, but I have made sure to be pleasant and civil. I've told both of the folks I talked to that I hope it gets easier for them. And I can't imagine how hard their jobs are right now because I did the same job and people can be really shitty because they want INSTANT answers/solutions/resolutions. And sometimes, you just don't get that. Both were pleasant and tried to play it off as if it's really not that bad. They didn't complain. They just said thank you, and have a nice day.

    When I read stories like yours, it makes me angry. Because I can only imagine how you are treating them on the phone.

    I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

    You have until March 31 at the latest.

    And in states where you must sign up on the Federal exchanges, the site is not working.

    Why don't you move to Kentucky?

    an account. I've been trying since the middle of September and some of the glitches were known then. The ACA is a vast improvement on the status quo but the federal exchange roll-out is an embarrassment.

    I would just wait a month.  You're clearly completely wasting your time (the site is currently broken) and there's zero practical difference between getting a policy that's effective on 1/1 now vs. in November.

    As someone who pre-ordered SimCity, I've been down this road before.

    You are actually causing YOURSELF needless stress at this point.

    I cannot get in unless I clear my cache. I found that really helps.

    Today I was able to get in and look at some of my options.
