Train wreck update: Some workers are already losing their employer-provided health insurance even though the employer mandate has been pushed back at least a year, and the government exchanges they were supposed to be able to go to for coverage might be delayed:

Alan Duncan, an auditor with the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, an Internal Revenue Service agency that monitors performance, said testing the systems needed to implement the exchanges “will be difficult to complete” by the October 1 start date.

“The lack of adequate testing could result in significant delays and errors in accepting and processing … applications for health insurance coverage,” he told the House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform committee.

At the same hearing, Government Accountability Office official John Dicken said the amount of work the federal government needs to do in each state has yet to be determined, raising the risk of missing deadlines. He added that the federal government and the states have already missed some deadlines.

The California insurance commissioner recently said that they could “have a real disaster on their hands” regarding implementing the exchanges. When the exchanges are “forced” into existence, they haven’t seen anything yet.
