The Hawaii Health Connector, has been unable to produce a fully functional website since it launched in October.
That’s especially troubling, because CGI Group got $53 million for its creation and another $20 million for operation and maintenance.
A separate $100 million web portal operated by the state Department of Human Services and designed by KPMG to connect Hawaii residents with Medicaid services, a requirement under ObamaCare, has also been problematic, House lawmakers said Tuesday.
Lawmakers questioned connector and state officials about reports of residents unable to get insurance or being delayed after applying for subsidies and getting directed instead to the Department of Human Services’ Medicaid site, Kolea.
The two websites “didn’t play well together” as one lawmaker noted, leaving some 11,000 applications unprocessed.
