Why You Can’t Find A Doctor on State’s Obamacare Site

D’oh! The rollout of Obamacare (which is offered by Covered California here), has been glitchy: First the website couldn’t support all the traffic, now the list of doctors has been taken down after numerous errors were found and some physicians who never signed up were listed as participating providers. The LA Times reports that the doctor directory was taken down on October 9, a little over a week since the site went live. According to the Times, the California Medical Assn. says it found mistakes such as obstetricians labeled as ophthalmologists and the wrong doctors being described as fluent in Russian and Farsi.
