Skip to comments.Obamacare woes widen as insurers get wrong data
Posted on 10/18/2013 5:19:24 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Insurers say the federal health-care marketplace is generating flawed data that is straining their ability to handle even the trickle of enrollees who have gotten through so far, in a sign that technological problems extend further than the website traffic and software issues already identified.
Emerging errors include duplicate enrollments, spouses reported as children, missing data fields and suspect eligibility determinations, say executives at more than a dozen health plans. Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Nebraska said it had to hire temporary workers to contact new customers directly to resolve inaccuracies in submissions. Medical Mutual of Ohio said one customer had successfully signed up for three of its plans.
The flaws could do lasting damage to the law if customers are deterred from signing up or mistakenly believe they have obtained coverage. .....

Awwww, what a shame, who would have ever imagined something like that? Didn’t they realize that they would be getting the same people who voted for Obama?
Dem's are in luck - the MSM will cover for them and speak of these horrors as 'glitches'...
If this had happened under Bush it would have been on the front page of the New York Times every day. But when it's 'one of their own' excuses - no matter how lame - are accepted. Must be nice to have a big older brother who will beat up those who disagree with you... not calling dems bullies or anything.,
One person signed up for 3 plans?
Has the voter fraud fomented by Obama spread to Obamacare????
This gets better & better......
Guess if you can have 7 Obamaphones like one woman bragged, you can have 3 Obamacare accounts.
Only hundreds have been able to sign up for a health care plan at the Obamacare websites. The Wall Street Journal reported:
Okay now we will try the landline # 1-800-318-2596 listed above or 1-800-318-2596 = 1-800-FAU-CKYO.
“One person signed up for 3 plans?”
That person might end up with 3 ObozoScare plans and 3 audits from the ObozoScare IRS thugs.
I guess that'll have to wait until the causes of those errors are identified and fixed, too, eh? And you say that will take until July of 2014? Then, given this recent experience, I'm going to guess we'll be into 2015 before it works reliably, even for a majority of the applications.
And now you're going to tell us it'll cost another $968 million to grease the palms of the former ACORN-types? And I'll bet you think you should be able to keep your job, too, right?
"That's pretty much it, Mr. Trump!"
The republicans have demanded everyone’s income will be verified. Obama agreed. hee hee Like that’s going to happen.
When the word gets out that anyone with an EBT card can get free insurance they’re really going to find out what a crash looks like. And apparently that’s who they’re signing up now. So the word is getting out.
The liberals still scream: “Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction!”
Obama lied about keeping your own doctor, keeping your own plan, premiums going down $2,500 and healthcare costs going down.
This should be republican talking points. But apparently they don’t accept “outside” advice.
Wait until the Walmart Plunderers figure out they can all get free healthcare. Talk about a lot of traffic.
It’s been almost three weeks and the website still isn’t functioning. I’ve tried since Day 1 to see how much these supposed “affordable plans” will cost me.. since I’m losing my insurance early next year.
We still aren’t hearing much about this “coverage gap” for those making less than 100% of the poverty level in states that haven’t expanded Medicaid. I can’t blame them, but more needs to be said about this particular topic. Instead of the media informing people of this, they just sit back and cover for the WH..
As a full-time student I don’t have any income, yet I am supposed to pay at the low end $2400 a year with an approximate $6500 deductible.
Without ObamaCare, I can pay all of my healthcare needs out of pocket and still come in less than $2400 a year, and that’s including a $150 a month catastrophic plan.
I can’t wait for all the low-information voters that live paycheck to paycheck to see what this is going to do to them. It hurts me too, but at least the crap hitting the fan will make me feel a little better and provide some entertainment.
Finding the Obamacare silver lining. :) Good luck with your situation.

...shes now shocked, just shocked over the Obamacare realities
"Of course, I want people to have health care," she said .
" I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally."
