Having worked doing this all you need to do is send everyone home. Get the four biggest nerds you have, lock them in a room, bring them pizza and mountain dew and in a few weeks they will have it done. Calling in another business is inviting more disaster.

Given that United Healthcare has been a key player in creating the massive health care crisis Obamacare is intended to solve, it seems appropriate they'd lend a hand. But I sure hope someone is watching them like a hawk.

Once they get all the back end problems fixed, they should bring in some people from ehealthinsurance to show them how to set up the "shopping" part.
