Sarah Hall Ingram, director of the IRS office with oversight of Obamacare, has been testifying before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Although individuals have encountered problems with the government's one-stop website, especially when trying to sign up for coverage online, Ingram claims it's not the IRS' fault. "Our systems have come up on time and operated as planned in turning interactions around," said Ingram. The open enrollment for individuals in fourteen state-run exchanges, as well as a default to the federal government in states where an exchange isn't currently available, kicked off on October 1, 2013, and runs through March 31, 2014. Coverage will be effective as of January 1, 2014. [AWEB]
