Obamacare telephone signup, that’s what President Obama offered during his speech on Monday. The alternative of signing up by phone will most likely get a lot of mileage after his speech, so are the phone lines ready for the influx of calls?
According to Syracuse.com on Oct. 21, President Obama’s phone signup option was emphasized on the website over the weekend. The Obamacare or HealthCare.gov website was modified to reflect the phone signup option.
Obamacare or Healthcare signup phone number is 1-800-318-2596.
Obamacare website or Healthcare.gov website is supposedly found here. (If you are lucky enough to make a connection.)
In an effort to rectify the Obamacare website, Obama has assembled “the best and the brightest” tech experts from across the government and from the private business sector. Why wasn’t this done in the first place? From what they were saying on Fox News today, the website was created using outdated technology.
Obamacare signup is a big undertaking, if Obama has his way every American will click into the website before the end of the year. So why would they not use the technology that is used for other big events that take thousands of website hits at one time?
Instead they created a website that doesn't seem to be able to handle the Obamacare traffic, even though the President is urging everyone in the country to stop by and check it out. Even a company like eBay or Amazon, the online auction and online marketplace, both appear to be able to handle more web traffic than the Obamacare website.
What about the power behind Facebook and Twitter, they handle tons of web hits at a time, so apparently the technology is out there. It isn't something they had to invent. For something that is this important you would think they would make sure the masses would have immediate access to it, so what happened? Hopefully the phone lines are a little more up-to-date.
