Obama administration taps contractor to fix health website

Print | Front Page | Email this story

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly a month into the health care rollout and no end in sight to computer problems, the Obama administration says it's finally getting someone outside the government to take the lead.

Administration officials announced Friday that one of the website's subcontractors — QSSI, Inc. — is being promoted to general contractor with overall responsibility for fixing the HealthCare.gov website.

The problem-riddled site was supposed to be the online portal for uninsured Americans to get coverage under President Barack Obama's health care law, but it has turned into a huge bottleneck instead.

Until now, officials at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services had the lead role.

QSSI has built a component of the website — called the data hub — that is working relatively well.
