Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee? The Obama administration settles on a definition
Washington Post ^ | Movember 10 2013 | Sarah Kliff

Posted on 11/11/2013 5:41:43 PM PST by MeshugeMikey

Health insurance plans only count subscribers as enrolled in a health plan once they’ve submited a payment. That is when the carrier sends out a member card and begins paying doctor bills.

When the Obama administration releases health law enrollment figures later this week, though, it will use a more expansive definition. It will count people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.

At the height of Dirigo (Maine’s state-run healthcare plan)they counted all the applicants as enrollees...even if they immediately cancelled and never paid a premium...just to pad the pathetic numbers.

Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee?

Easy enough - a Democrat Obama voter.

Bribes for votes, nothing less, nothing more.

I heard Pat Buchanan speculate today on Hannity, that when the Sh!t really hits the fan, there will be “Guillotines” for those responsible. I am so mad at the weak republicrats that ran from a fight like the french!! I can’t stand it!! but we have 100 million people buying crap they don’t want— cancelled from their policy and that lying scumbag playing golf. I expect a real bad reaction politically— REAL BAD. But I don’t want a bunch of weak fat Chritie idiots — MC amnesty jack ass4s!! I want total conservatives or I will NOT vote again!! You stand in the middle of the road — you get run over by both sides.

If one of your former girlfriends within the last 25 years once voiced a desire to see her third cousin’s boyfriend’s fourth cousin get on-board Obamacare, that’s close enough. You have tried to enroll.

If you ever had a dream related to healthcare, even if it was a Freddy Kruger nightmare, you’ve tried to enroll.

If you once had a hangnail, and wished only for a moment you could get free help with it, you’ve tried to enroll.

If you’ve ever been on the internet and searched for something with the words “Affordable”, “Health”, “Care”, or “Obama” in it, you’ve tried to enroll.

If you’ve ever used search engine and wound up on a government site, you’ve tried to enroll.

If you’ve ever used a search engine and landed on a site with one of the letters “A”, “H”, or “C” in it anywhere, you’ve tried to enroll.

And if you’ve gotten a haircut in the last 30 months, you’ve already received services.

Read the fine print. I guarantee it’s in there. /s

My 2 cents: Of course it was supposed to be a disaster so they could blame insurance companies and go single payer. What they didn’t count on was it being such a monumental disaster from day one, long before the 2014 election. There was supposed to be a “honeymoon”. Reality, like gravity, can be a female dog.

Actually its worse than the WP describes. They can sign up, pay the first month premium and then be given a 3 month unpaid 'Grace period' of additional listing as "enrolled" before being booted off the list. The insurance company is supposed to pay for care during the first month of that 'Grace period.' The insurance company isn't liable for payments during the second and third month of the 'Grace period.' Providers are permitted to charge the patient (once they learn the claim to having coverage was essentially fraudulent) though I doubt they'll get as much as Obama voters get from Detroit pensions. Check out the details from the appropriate subs**t of the stool sample† here. The intent is clearly to have unsuspecting medical providers eat lots of medical costs. And to have enough smarter providers, refusing to cover any 'enrollees,' to provide scapegoats when the public demands that stool sample be flushed. They'll be ready then with a single, low flow toilet, to service the entire country.

† you had to pass it to see what was in it.

What a trainwreck. They come up with a phony definition of “enrollee”... and they still can only get 50,000 enrollments?

Even Billy Jeff Clinton knows its a train wreck now.

"former President Bill Clinton said that President Obama should keep his pledge to allow people to keep their current health care plans, if they like them, under Obamacare:"

I dont see how obama's plan will allow for the survival of the democrat party unless thats what clintons comments are supposed to help ..accomplish.

How stupid and misleading. Counting an item as “sold” when that item is sitting in a shopping cart with no payment issued?

That is just pure BS and lies. Amazon would never claim a sale until it was paid for. Neither would any insurance company in the Unite States BECAUSE IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL AND THEY WOULD BE FINED BY THE INSURANCE REGULATORS FOR CLAIMING SUCH. Only the lying liars in the Obama administration would lie about number of its subscribers.

I am so sick of these idealists that think none of the rules apply to them.

A “subscriber” in their twisted lying minds is someone who has not finalized the transaction or even paid a single penny.
