WASHINGTON — There’s another quirk in the Obama administration’s new health insurance system: It lacks a way for consumers to quickly and easily update their coverage for the birth of a baby and other common life changes.
With regular private insurance, parents just notify the health plan.
Right now, the HealthCare.gov website cannot handle such updates.
While insurers will still cover new babies, the administration says, parents will also have to contact the government at some point later on.
