Exactly. It will add costs of its own. We just won't see them because taxpayers, not health insurance customers, will foot the bill.
Every time I hear about what the health insurance exchange is going to require, I continue to hear $'s. People. People to manage people. Highly complex systems that need to load totally different rules for different states. People to process information that comes in. Customer service support. Technicians who can keep up with the constantly changing rules. And within these teams, you have managers, supervisors, and higher-level managers.
How much money will be and has been spent on promoting and educating on the exchange?
And how much money will be spent on inefficiencies? People you don't need? Poorly managed projects that fall behind schedule. Projects that get set back because poorly managed projects fell behind schedule.
But the good news is that Congress is running the business. Not, y'know, people who know how to run a business.
I am scared to see what the price tag is when all is said and done.
