Weekend tech maintenance to affect HealthCare.gov

Poll Health Overhaul

WASHINGTON (AP) - This time, they're giving you notice.

Some consumers won't be able to finish their online health insurance applications this weekend because Social Security's computer system will be undergoing heavy maintenance. It will not be able to verify Social Security numbers and certain other personal details needed for coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law.

The federal Health and Human Services department said Monday the maintenance will start at 3 p.m. Eastern time Saturday, February 15, and end at 5 a.m. on Tuesday, February 18. Other parts of HealthCare.gov will be functioning.

The 15th of the month is the deadline to apply for coverage to start on the 1st of the following month. Consumers affected should contact the federal call center (800-318-2596) on Tuesday to arrange for coverage March 1.

This brought to us by the GOPTEA - The 16 day - 26 BILLION dollar costing shutdown is the cause. It's a FACT - look it up people. Oh yeah, sorry Righty morons - Forgot that FACT is a bad 4 letter word and that they don't have THOSE on FOX.

Like many American citizens, I would like nothing better to see this Obama care to just go away, and maybe him with it.

I did not vote for him, but what bothers me he how did he get in for a 2nd term. When he was re-elected I was floored, who in their right mind would believe all of his crap. I'm blessed I have Medicare and Military Ins for life, thanks to my now deceased husband who put 34 years in the US Navy. The only drawback is that if Medicare does not cover my medical care then the Military won't. I'm in San Diego, we do have a Military hospital available for both military and civilian persons. Then we have the good ole VA hospital. I'd like to wish everyone affected by Obamacare the best of luck. Peace.....

Look, I'm not going to go into obamacares flaws, to which there are many. I'm not going to go into how he changes the rules about who is required to be covered for political posturing. I'm not going to go into a broken website.
I'm just plain and simply going to say "Obama sucks."

Typical Obamaturd tactics...delay and delay. What do you really expect from a guy that has never hired anyone or run anything in his entire life besides community activism and an associate professor position that isn't responsible for anything but grading papers.

This health care should never have b een voted in & supreme court screwed up badly. Evey one was happy with there insurance coverage, why mess that up?
Now just think of the results, many lost their coverage, the new plan is making coverage so mich more costly & the medical care wont near as good, if at all.
We term limits for house & senate members, & also supreme court justices. Our government is failing , member when sworn in place there handle on the bible, but after that they do as they please, which means they all look out for them selves first.
We need change a.s.a.p.
