Obama Administration Puts Gag Order on HealthCare.gov Testing

Once again the self proclaimed “most transparent administration in history” proves itself to be the most secretive.

Via the great Sharyl Atkisson:

Health policy strategist Robert Laszewski is out with his latest analysis of news that insurers are being required to keep strict confidentiality surrounding what should be the wholly public business of HeathCare.gov.

Apparently, the administration doesn’t want word getting out if things don’t go as smoothly as they hope in new testing prior to the second Obamacare open-enrollment period beginning November 15th.

Most experts expect no major glitches this year after last year’s enrollment debacle. However, the administration appears to be keeping its trademark tight clamp on as much information as possible, just in case.

From the Wall Street Journal and Laszewski:

The administration reminded insurers that their confidentiality agreement with the Obama administration means that insurance executives “will not use, disclose, prescribe, post to a public forum, or in any way share Test Data with any person or entity, included but not limited to media…” This includes any “results of this testing exercise and any information describing or otherwise relating to the performance or functionality” of the Obamacare enrollment and eligibility system.
