A total of 365,000 individuals have gained access to the health care amenities that the government had promised the afflicted in the US. That unfortunately is a drop in the bucket of those with maladies. The majority of aching, ailing and afflicted people remain outside the medical welfare program begun under the initiative of the President.
However, it is still an improvement, although very slight, over the original numbers which were estimated back in October. More than a hundred thousand boarded the medical services vessel at the beginning. Then double that amount took advantage of the facility. However, the numbers show no sign of leveling off. And this could prove to be somewhat of a problem.
The fact that the website that offered the service was full of errors from the start caused much chagrin and complaints to issue forth from the public. The HealthCare.gov site is facing internal snags that have made logging on and signing in a headache for many who are in dire need of medical help. The laudable goal of adding seven million people by March will not be met thanks to the intrinsic obstacles on the site.
Nevertheless, one thing which has been noted is that perseverance pays off when it comes to the site. The individuals who continued to try to log on to the site without any signs of giving up were successful. The government is asking the masses to persist in their online efforts in order to be a part of the medical insurance plan begun by America’s first Black President.
