Record-keeping snags could complicate the start of insurance coverage this month as people begin using policies they purchased under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
Insurance companies are still trying to sort out cases of so-called health insurance orphans, customers for whom the government has a record that they enrolled, but the insurer does not.
Government officials say the problem is real but under control, with orphan records being among the roughly 13,000 problem cases they are trying to resolve with insurers. But insurance companies are worried the process will grow more cumbersome as they deal with the flood of new customers who signed up in December as enrollment deadlines neared.
More than 1 million people have signed up through the federal insurance market that serves 36 states. Officials contend the error rate for new signups is close to zero.
Insurers, however, are less enthusiastic about the pace of the fixes. The companies also are seeing cases in which the government has assigned the same identification number to more than one person, as well as so-called "ghost" files in which the insurer has an enrollment record but the government does not.

What a great way to run a fuster cluck!
“...the government has assigned the same identification number to more than one person...”
this is NOT the Government we deserve!
could this possibly be a part of the plan to completely Dishearten America?
Or is it just plain incompentance?
They will probably all be registered to vote more than once too!
nobamacare...a bad laugh a minute.
CGI is being let go with the “Cleaner” being Accenture which has a bad history with federal contracts.
Not one word about the Doc’s who will take the biggest hit on this.
The Democrats are treating the healthcare applications like they treat election ballots. They can find them if they need them.
I know six chickens that would be upset with you .... :-)
Well like I said yesterday we ended up with the opposite problem — somehow got enrolled in two different insurance companies although I had applied to only one and had never even heard of the second until the insurance cards arrived. This led to a few hours of anxiety as I feared that both would be rejected at a provider or that I’d get two bills with a big hit to my credit score when I refused to pay the second. Turned out that only the first was valid (the correct one) and the second was one of those “phantoms” that doesn’t really exist anywhere. I did have the primary provider run the correct one to make sure.
How did the “phantom” company get your info and know that you were applying for insurance? Did they hack healthcare.gov?
Oh, I imagine they were sent a bogus date record from the state exchange.
