The Maryland website for ObamaCare mistakenly listed an 800 number that sent some Maryland residents attempting to pick a health insurance provider to Seattle Pottery Supply, instead of the state’s call center.
The number appears under the words “State Advantage” and “call a representative,” according to The Baltimore Sun.
The correct number for help shows up multiple times on the marylandhealthconnection.gov site before the incorrect number appears.
Critics of the state-run site said Saturday this is just the latest in a long series of problems for the Maryland health exchange.
“You can’t make this stuff up, and I guess if it wasn’t so serious, it could be funny,” said state Senate Minority Leader David R. Brinkley, a Frederick County Republican.
A state spokeswoman said Saturday that she had no update on efforts to fix the problem. Maryland officials were unaware of the problem until contacted Friday by the newspaper.
