A key part of the President Obama’s Affordable Care Act will be the introduction of online health insurange exchanges. Consumers can get coverage from private companies competing for their business. The exchanges are set to go live in a little over a week, but it looks like there’s a problem — the Wall Street Journal reports computer systems for these exchanges aren’t calculating customer rates correctly.
