Medicaid rolls swell as state officials resolve backlog of paper ObamaCare applications – Boston Business Journal

Deval Patrick tasked with cleaning up the website mess, said that the backlog of paper applications has been eliminated. The total number of paper applications a month ago was 50,000, and the state received an additional 22,000 new paper applications since then. Many of those individuals have been placed in temporary Medicaid coverage: That transitional program has grown to 125,000 from 84,000 in just the past week. That’s because vendor CGI Corp. failed to build a working website tool to determine which people are eligible for help paying for health insurance and which are not.
