Description

Three weeks into the disastrous launch of healthcare.gov we were asked to produce a series of reports digging into the practical and political problems surrounding the project. We were able to cultivate important inside sources who provided crucial context and shed light on what went wrong and how the administration attempted to spin and cover it up. Among other findings, we exclusively showed how the Obama administration falsely stated that there would be no impact on the majority of Americans insured through work, exposed how HHS stopped issuing key regulations needed to develop healthcare.gov for months prior to the 2012 elections, uncovered tests that happened just days before the launch, showing that it crashed with just a few hundred users, revealed the so-called “death spiral” business model that predicts an abysmal collapse of the entire program if the number and profile of enrollees doesn't drastically improve, and unearthed the shocking security risks of healthcare.gov that were documented and discussed prior to launch.
