More 'Bumps' to Come with Next Obamacare Enrollment Period

Put on your "surprised" face.


A top official from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services told lawmakers Thursday that the agency expects more "bumps" during the 2015 ObamaCare enrollment period.

"I expect it won't be perfect serving millions of people," new CMS Principal Deputy Administrator Andy Slavitt said of the enrollment website, Healthcare.gov, before a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Oversight subcommittee.

"It's a bumpy process at times, we have committed people but there will clearly be bumps," he added.

The hearing followed the Wednesday release of a Government Accountability Office report that highlighted management failures behind the botched rollout of the enrollment website, which led to $840 million in costs.
