Six health insurance executives testified on Capitol Hill today. And all six, each representing a different company, unanimously agreed: The Obamacare website is still not entirely fixed.

The witnesses included Frank Coyne of Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, Mark Pratt of America’s Health Insurance Plans, Paul Wingle of Aetna, Brian Evanko of Cigna, J. Darren Rodgers of Health Care Service Corporation, and Dennis Matheis of Wellpoint, Inc.

"There are still issues on the back-end" of the website, said Coyne.

Wingle said, "There's still work to be done."

Matheis was the most diplomatic, saying, "Yes, to echo my colleagues' statements, we still have opportunities for improvement."

The questions came from Congressman Pete Olson of Texas.
