The Times-Picayune ^ | 8/13/14 | Heather Nolan

Is checking in to a hospital as a dead person a new twist in obamacare?

Her dead sister probably still votes (democrat). Its only fair she should still get free ObamaCare.

No Justice, No Peace.

Memorializing her on the shirt, billing her for the care.

That’s like those urban Anti-Violence Summits that always finish with a nice big fist-fight or gun fire.

HOSPITAL: Our records show you died.

It almost worked, would have, if not for a bad clothing choice. Of all days to wear that particular shirt. Makes you wonder what kind of injury she needed treatment for. Could she have been bopped on the head by a falling apple maybe?

Reminds me of a case where my company's UAW pension plan was paying out survivor benefits to the wife of a deceased retiree.

We ultimately discovered that the surviving spouse had died and her sister, who she had been living with, failed to report the death and continued to receive and cash the monthly pension benefit.

This had been going on for a number of years and the company had paid out approx. $30,000 to the deceased.........Which by the way were never recovered due to legal issues that would take too long to explain............

It was easy to tell them apart.

The sister was the dead one but this one was still moving.

Another fallacy of the woman’s logic (guess she doesn’t have any) -

Who and what rules say once you’re dead, you don’t pay medical bills anymore?

HOSPITAL: Our records show you died.

WOMAN: Yes, but I got over it.

Or: WOMAN: Yes, but the records of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

When I worked for kaiser in Cali, we had a guy who would come to the ER with a disappearing bullet in his chest. Sometimes it was there on xray, sometimes it wasn’t. Multiple family members and friends would use the patients Kaiser card.
I got a kick out of saying “ hey Mr Jones what happened to that bullet in your left lung?” and enjoy the look on their face as they tried to explain it.

I saw a guy get beat up by police one time because they accused him of lying when asked to identify himself. It seems that his brother had previously been arrested and used his name at booking.

Sounds like the cop mentality - there’s no problem that blunt force trauma won’t solve.

Having just voted as her dead sister, cashed her sister's child support check, and renewed the monthly benefits on her dead sister's SNAP card... she figured she may as well go get her sister's herpes checked out.

I have personal knowledge of 2 cases in which someone was continuing to receive the deceased SS payments. Yes, I reported both, and I think corrections were made, but one can’t be positive.

So how many more cases are out there?

Based on my experience where I only shared one, I would say literally hundreds of thousands..........

It seems more like giving the hospital a hint that they’re being defrauded.
