In the never ending saga of errors plaguing health exchange websites, it seems this one is hilarious.

The Maryland site has listed an 800 number for a help line that actually rings the phone at a Seattle-based pottery business.

I suppose the "pottery" is ironic.

Now they seem to be scrambling to correct the problem.

The money funnels are bottomless.

Critics say wrong number is latest failure of Md. health exchange

Critics said Saturday that the latest problem to hit Maryland's online health exchange — an incorrect help-line number that directed hundreds of callers to a Seattle-based pottery business — was another symptom of the poorly operating website.

"You can't make this stuff up, and I guess if it wasn't so serious, it could be funny," said Senate Minority Leader David R. Brinkley, a Frederick County Republican.

The website mistakenly listed a 1-800 number that sent some Marylanders attempting to pick a health insurance provider to Seattle Pottery Supply instead of Maryland's call center. The number appears under the words "State Advantage" and "call a representative." The correct number for help shows up multiple times on the site before the incorrect number appears.

Don't they know they are playing games with peoples' lives !!

They don't care about individuals.
Not one bit.

Affordable Care Act?

They'd do more good if the 1-800 number was to one of those naughty services.


Obamacare has become a punch line!

It is the Sharknado of political moves.
