Skip to comments.Report: 20% of Obamacare 'Enrollees' to See Cancellation Notices Soon
Posted on 01/30/2014 12:07:16 PM PST by gooblah
One in five Obamacare "enrollees" could have their plans cancelled for failure to pay their first month's premium. That figure is based on reports from health insurers themselves, some of whom have made 10 attempts to collect the first payment.

“But I thought it was supposed to be free!!!”
Premiums?! We don’t need no stinkin premiums! I thought Obama Care was FREE! /
Until the emperor decrees that policies cannot be canceled due to non-payment.
My neighbor, who happens to be black, told me that under 0bamacare it would be free to go to the hospital. You are accurate. You are not sarcastic.
I pulled the “This is free now, right?” joke on my doctor. You shoulda seen the look on his face! Then I spoiled the effect by bustin’ out laughin’!
Actually - the hoops to cancel the “enrollees” are nearly as heavy as kicking out a non-paying tenant in California....
Say February comes around, and an enrollee who has paid ZERO of their premium, gets seriously ill, has to go in the hospital and is treated at a cost of say - $100K. Guess who is on the hook for that... the insurance company plus the provider. They cannot deny services, and they must cover/eat that cost.
And of course, taxpayers will eat some of it too - as another thread posted in the last little bit reminds us.
Hope they get notified by the obamaphone....
Yep, and wait until the penalties and subsidy true-ups hit next tax time.
The day after Obama signed it, low-info types started showing up at doctors offices demanding their FREE health care.
You mean it wasn’t free —
What..and here I thought Obamacare would be free, free Govt treats for everyone LOL
20%? I thought another report said 80% had not paid. Why are they kicking out only one in four deadbeats?
Obamacare just proves the biggest problem Obama has. He came to the office with no useful practical experience in anything. Hillary has the same problem.
It is amazing how Americans can vote for people who can’t even balance a checkbook.
Tell them to send the bill to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC.
In effect they are. If the insurance companies incur significant losses, the Obamacare risk corridor will kick in and taxpayers will be hit again to pay the insurance companies for their losses.
Probably holding off paying until they need coverage.
I would think these figures from the health insurers themselves would be far more credible than ones from the exchange (which in the case of the federal exchange isn’t even involved in billing or collection).
Of COURSE they haven’t paid...the only ones who enrolled were those who thought it would be free.
Obama and his uneducated, uninformed, sheeple voters have set this country aflame...and like it or not, it’s going down. Why? Because the truth doesn’t hold water against skittles, unicorns, and rainbow talk of handouts, raising the minimum wage, healthcare for everyone (yippee!), etc. All the libtard lies sound good, and you can’t reason with complete morons.
To all the O voters now whining about their skyrocketing healthcare costs: BLLLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW ME.
