Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who was a vocal critic of the botched online rollout of Healthcare.gov, tells Judy Woodruff the next test of the system will be Nov. 15th when the exchanges will be relaunched. Emanuel cited other health care and ecommerce sites that offer consumers a better shopping experience. “They really need to upgrade this to be much more…of a 21st century ecommmerce site,” Emanuel said.
Despite the highly visible problems during the online rollout, the health care law has been big success, Emanuel said, citing cost controls and the number of uninsured who have been enrolled.
“On any measure you pick, the affordable care act has had an important, positive impact on the health care system,” Emanuel said.
