Owen works at Design Extensions out of his office in World Golf Village. He said similar sized sites like Facebook or Twitter are even more complex than the healthcare website and they don’t fail.
“The healthcare.gov website has to go pull data from mother sources, and it seems like it just wasn’t tested on a scale that will make it actually work,” said Owen.
Owen told Channel 4 that whoever designed the site for the government will have a lot of questions to answer.
“This would be a scary situation, especially if you’ve been paid what the company’s been paid to do this site. I’m not sure how their contract reads, it’s almost operational at this point,” said Owen.
For those without insurance, UF health will remain their hospital. There is a contract with the city for services at least next year.
