The official Overwatch forum is the best place for players to receive updates by the game's developers and to voice complaints -- often strongly.
A member of the forums found a post by a Blizzard employee that listed all bugs currently known by Blizzard. While these bugs won't necessarily be fixed with the next patch, they are supposedly what Blizzard is working on.
Among the list of known bugs was Moira's ability to heal through barriers, which will now be a thing of the past.

Moira's Biotic Grasp allows her to heal teammates with a yellow spray, and it comes in handy because she can heal multiple teammates at a time, as long as they are in front of her. However, she was able to heal through enemy barriers, which gave her an advantage over some of the other healers.
Zenyatta can't heal through barriers either, unless his target already has his Orb of Harmony before they pass the barrier, nor can any of the other healers use their abilities to heal teammates caught within an enemy barrier.

Moira's Coalescence doesn't seem to be affected by this, which is very fortunate considering her ultimate has to pass through barriers in order to reach its full potential. However, since this bug will prevent her ability to heal through barriers, Moira's healing abilities may take a hit.
Unless players have a Biotic Orb on hand to send towards low health enemies, she'll be unable to provide any sort of support for her team until they escape.
