I did large implementation for international banks for years. This is no where close to being finished, The fact that integration testing was never done means that there alot of things lurking out there. Moreover United Health Care, can you spell single source?

United Healthcare has been a bigtime republican contributor. I bet they'll really try to fix the glitches.

I use UNITED's website and I hate it. Blue Cross is much better-is more streamlined, has the items patients need. I hate UNITED.

I certainly hope they get this fixed quickly but I shake my head knowing that we taxpayers will be paying $millions more for UnitedHealth's outrageous executive compensation!

If I remember right Governor Dayton couldn't find a local company with local employees to create MNSure. So now the Feds say United Health Care is the only company that got things done right. Figure that one out. What it means to me is Dayton didn't bring those MNSure jobs to Minnesota. Do we have window shopping yet on MNSure? I bet we don't.

The costs keep piling up, while most of the people that have signed up signed up for free Medicare and only a small percentage for private (pay) policies. Other people's money at work again.

Our government paid $85 million to QSSI and how much did we pay CGI for their part of this? I'm a programmer and I feel this project could have easily been finished by a single person in a few months. It would not take more than $20k tops, where does the other $84.8 million go? A decent programmer could accomplish the entire site in a few months, so $60k a year isn't bad to pay.
