HealthCare.gov is a Fully Functional Service

The service known as HealthCare.gov is fully functional. In fact, it just might give Obamacare the much needed booster shot in the arm it so desperately needs.

HealthCare.gov is a Fully Functional Service

HealthCare.gov may be working just fine. Yet there are doubts. However, in the opinion of the customers, it is definitely up to par. Over 2/3rd of the changes have already been made. The waiting time has gone down to one second from the much longer eight seconds interval. HealthCare.gov is currently able to process over 50,000 individuals who utilize it. 

Back in November, it was dysfunctional for more than half the time. Now it is close to 100% in working order. Obviously, this does entail outage periods that are extended. And that does not even begin to take into account the maintenance time required for overhauling the site. The fate of 200 fixes which are left behind hangs in the balance. Besides, the ratio of people who do not get the desired approval upon filling out their applications remains a mystery. 

How the site fares in the long run is yet to be seen. The payment methodology is still in the preliminary stages. Yet, despite the odds against it, HealthCare.gov will be right on track in no time. Obamacare may face a hurdle or two in the form of opposition yet that is no reason it won’t be successful in the future. 

However, Republicans will be Republicans. Change nevertheless is the law of life. And abrupt changes are always painful not to mention shocking. There are many issues that need to be resolved before the health and wellbeing service gets off the ground. But that is no reason to be pessimistic.
