Covered California Removes Online Doctor Directory

LOS ANGELES (AP/KTTV) - The state's insurance exchange, Covered California, has pulled its online directory of medical providers after acknowledging it is riddled with wrong information.

The Los Angeles Times reports the California Medical Association says it found mistakes such as obstetricians labeled as ophthalmologists and the wrong doctors described as fluent in Russian and Farsi.

The search tool for doctors and hospitals has been offline since Oct. 9 while fixes are being made. An exchange spokesman says it might be restored sometime in the next week.

The newspaper says overall Covered California's website and enrollment system appear to have recovered from technical glitches reported on the system's opening day.

The insurance exchange says nearly 95,000 applications for health coverage have been started since Oct. 1.
