WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has unveiled an updated version of HealthCare.gov. It’s got some improvements and some challenges. There’s also at least one early mistake.
Officials guided reporters through the health insurance website on Wednesday.
On the plus side, it features a streamlined application for many who’ll be signing up for the first time. Officials say it’s also optimized for mobile devices.
The goof is a mistranslation in large type on the home page of the Spanish-language version of the site. Trying to translate “get ready,” someone came up with the wrong word. The Spanish site had lots of problems last year.
One challenge involves returning customers. They will have a short time frame to update their financial information.
Open enrollment starts Nov. 15 for coverage effective Jan 1.
