The New York Times and Wall Street Journal both reported Sunday that insurers said they were still receiving bad or missing data from HealthCare.gov. They portrayed it as a significant impediment to getting people covered under the law. “Health plans can’t process enrollments they don’t receive," a spokesman for America's Health Insurance Plans, the industry's top lobbying group, told the Times.

Bataille encouraged people who have enrolled in coverage through HealthCare.gov to call their insurer to verify that they've been enrolled and/or paid their first premium.
