It's almost as if there's something about Government per se
that makes it virtually impossible to do anything well:
The [New York] state Health Department published the wrong list of sites where New Yorkers can get help signing up for Obamacare — leaving businesses confused about why people keep asking them about health insurance . . . .
Under federal law, the state was supposed to work with agencies to provide a host of healthcare exchange navigators to "provide in-person enrollment assistance to individuals, families, small businesses and their employees who apply for health insurance through the Exchange" starting on Oct. 1, when the program went live.
But in September, when the state published its 228-page list of locations where navigators could be found, along with the days and times they were supposed to be available to the public, they published the wrong one, according to a DOH spokesman.
“That is not the correct list,” said Jeffrey Hammond, a spokesman for the New York State Department of Health, when DNAinfo New York asked him about the list last week. “That’s something we’re looking into. We can't tell you anything more about this.”
The list — which includes everything from senior centers to bakeries, taxi companies and cupcake shops — was still on the DOH's website Tuesday.
