Skip to comments.Obamacare System Issues Mean “Enrollees” May Not Actually be Covered

Can you imagine going through all the trouble to get enrolled in Obamacare, only to find out you arent actually covered when you try to use your shiny new insurance?
Consumers who made it through the crashes and glitches of the perpetually broken Obamacare enrollment site and were able to sign up for insurance may be in for a rude awakening next month due to a significant problem with the back end of the site.
The information that insurance companies are receiving through the website is often jumbled or incomplete and in some cases, it isnt going through at all. Some insurers have reported that they have tested the site using John Doe applications and the information they submitted did not make it through the back end.
Enrollment forms called 834s are sent to insurance companies after a customer enrolls in a plan. Glitches on the site are causing problems with the information on those forms, which are impacting a significant number of consumers:
The errors cumulatively have affected roughly one-third of the people who have signed up for health plans since Oct. 1, according to two government and health-care industry officials. The White House disputed the figure but declined to provide its own.
The mistakes include failure to notify insurers about new customers, duplicate enrollments or cancellation notices for the same person, incorrect information about family members, and mistakes involving federal subsidies. (source)
The administration has been focused on getting the front-end working so consumers can sign up for coverage even as the back-end errors accumulate.
If the enrollment form errors are not corrected, tens of thousands of consumers will be at risk of not having coverage when the insurance goes into effect Jan. 1 because the health plans they selected do not have the information needed to send them a bill. The ACA stipulates that consumers are not considered to be covered unless they have paid at least the first monthly insurance premium.
The White House is urging customers to double-check that they have coverage:
If consumers are not sure if they are enrolled, they should call our customer call center or the insurer of their choice so that they can be sure theyre covered by Jan. 1, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday. The administration is reaching out by telephone and email to consumers who have begun or submitted applications via HealthCare.gov, in order to advise them of the steps they must take to confirm their enrollments.
Of course, the Obama administration insists that the enrollment form glitch will be repaired by next month, when plans are supposed to be in effect.
But we all know better, dont we?
This farcical obamabortion is called a smokescreen . its meant to be TERRIBLE .
Everyone is so aghast at this theyre forgetting to tell WE THE PEOPLE what is IN THAT PIECE OF CRAP LEGISLATION
Its so UNCONSTITUTIONAL its pathetic.
Its also the biggest TAX increase in the history of EARTH .DEATH PANELS . OVER 67 & get cancer? here- take a few pills . sell your house, give 3.8% to ObastardCARE . have a REAL GOOD PLAN? pay another 40% in tax so a union obamazombie can get a free policy!!!
A TAX Mr. Chief Justice Roberts? That doesnt pass the stink test you MORON . what kind of tax is subsidized for one group and while screwing the rest?
Well see if the SCOTUS upholds our 1st Amendment rights . and that would be our right FROM GOD!!!
Lets see if our government has been FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMED so that our rights are now granted by fallible human beings in a corrupt government.
If that makes me a criminal GOOD
. come and get me
. best send a fucking platoon and body bags
There isn’t enough room and besides I would again be furloughed by the moderator.
It’s amazing that Americans who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medications and a government bureaucracy to administer it.
The Pentagon today is a rat’s nest of civilians (Lots of LGBT types) who are directing our combat activity. If the purpose of the decades long Afghan war is to ruin morale and try the patience of the military it’s a marvelous Obamian success.
I’ve said this so many times that in the face of the treason that is today’s civilian military rulers I’ll say it again:
There is NO job that can’t be performed by uniformed military personnel. The entire military needs to be ‘reset’ to the position that excludes homosexuals and women. Women utilized in positions that in times past were clerical and generally separate from male military.
Now they’re getting their legs shot off in Afghanistan and getting raped (most is consensual)while they’ve left their children and families at home desiring to play combat soldier.
The entire situation is ridiculous!
My pick for the quote/post of the day.(so far)
Hannity recently had two PROFESSIONAL web site developers on his TV show. He asked them both how much they might have charged to construct a secure web site that functioned as necessary from the git go: Their TOP figure was around $10 million!!
That's much more than one well respected US IT firm offered to do the project for: THEY'D HAVE DONE IT FOR FREE!!
Compare those to the estimated $1 BILLION this SOB has shuttled to his cronies for this turkey and I think even the most devoted obozo worshiper can grasp the magnitude of the CORRUPTION in this on-going CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE!!! (Well that's almost certainly an overstatement...)
WHERE THE HELL IS CONGRESS IN ALL OF THIS?
ANSWER: On their computers checking their numbered Swiss accounts to be certain the proper amount was deposited!!!!
IF THIS DOESN'T P.I.S.S. Y.O.U. O.F.F. you aren't paying attention and you're certainly too stupid to vote.
We need an angry electoral tsunami to sweep the parasites on the Potomac OUT of Malfunction Junction in the next cycles and replace them with men and women who have READ and UNDERSTAND the CONSTITUTION!! Anything short of that and we're TOAST!!
