Three Guys In Their 20s Fixed The Healthcare.gov Problem In A Matter Of Days (VIDEO)
Three tech geeks in their 20s – George Kalogeropoulos, Ning Liang, and Michael Wasser – didn’t like witnessing the abysmal rollout of the Affordable Care Act website that is Healthcare.gov, so they did what any self-respecting web gurus would do: Saw it as a challenge, and made their own version. On a few nights and weekends.
“They’ve got it completely backwards in terms of what people want up front – they want prices… You come to our website, you put in your zip code… you hit ‘find plans,’ and you immediately see exchange plans that are available for that zip code.’
The result, which the trio built for free, is called HealthSherpa.com, and it’s working right now.
CBS News reports that;
“…using information buried in the government’s own website built by high-priced government contractors, they found a simpler way to present it to users.”
