Obamacare 'War Room' docs: Few options, higher prices?

Washington (CNN) - Officials expressed concern that the next shoe to drop in the evolving story about the Affordable Care Act would be disappointment from consumers once they are able to get on the troubled healthcare.gov website – disappointment because of sticker shock and limited choice, according to a new document obtained by CNN.

WATCH: Obama rebuttals accusations his health care law is forcing Americans off their plans.

"Mike described a general concern of PM (Project Management): getting to the point where the website is functioning properly and individuals begin to select plans; the media attention will follow individuals to plan selection and their ultimate choices; and, in some cases, there will be fewer options than would be desired to promote consumer choice and an ideal shopping experience. Additionally, in some cases there will be relatively high cost plans," say the notes from the Obama administration's Obamacare 'War Room' from one week ago.

    @tom l,

    "Can anyone give an honest answer as to why I must have maternity care as part of my insurance when I'm a 44 year old man?"

    It's a good question. I was rather hoping you'd look up the reason and explain the injustice of it all. Unless, of course, your question is your actual point.
