Three 20-Year-Olds Build Their Own Version of Healthcare.gov

According to TheVerge –

A trio of programmers in San Francisco have built their own version of Healthcare.gov, the federal insurance marketplace that has had serious technical issues since launching on October 1st, over the course of “a few late nights.” HealthSherpa allows users to browse health insurance plans available in their zip code, and even calculates what federal tax subsidies they may be eligible for. The government site does not allow users to browse plans like this, instead requiring everyone to register and fill out an application. The site does not attempt to do most of the complex functions of Healthcare.gov, including verifying identity and submitting applications. It’s more of a demonstration of how one aspect could have been designed better. “They got it completely backwards in terms of what people want up front,” Ning Liang told CBS News. “They want prices and benefits, so that they could make the decision.”
