With critics panning the Obamacare exchange website Healthcare.gov for its myriad technological problems, a tech news site has surfaced with a dollar estimate for what the glitchy website actually cost taxpayers.

According to Digital Trends, CGI Federal received $634,320,919 to construct Healthcare.gov — or more than the amount spent building Linkedin ($200 million) and Spotify ($288 million) combined.

The site also cost more than it took to initially create Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, according to the report.

The Department of Health and Human Services did not respond to The Daily Caller’s request for comment.

The expense appears even larger when compared with the amount the company was originally slated to receive, as in 2011 CGI Federal was contracted to build the site for about $93 million.
