Washington Post Reports Thousands Waiting On Healthcare.gov Appeals

More bad news on Healthcare.gov. This from Sunday’s WaPo:

“Tens of thousands of people who discovered that HealthCare.gov made mistakes as they were signing up for a health plan are confronting a new roadblock: The government cannot yet fix the errors. Roughly 22,000 Americans have filed appeals with the government to try to get mistakes corrected, according to internal government data obtained by The Washington Post. They contend that the computer system for the new federal online marketplace charged them too much for health insurance, steered them into the wrong.” insurance program or denied them coverage entirely …”

Not good.  The newspaper reports that consumers who call the 1-800 help line  “are (being) told that HealthCare.gov’s computer system is not yet allowing federal workers to go into enrollment records and change them, according to individuals inside and outside the government who are familiar with the situation.”

Go read the whole thing.

What is it that the promoter says to Peter Parker in the first Spider Man movie, when he won’t pay Parker the $3000 he was owed for winning the fight in the wrestling cage? “I forgot the part where that’s my problem”. That will be the campaign slogan by the Democrats when all the consequences from the reality that is Obamacare will be seen, heard, and felt by the time November 4th comes along. When people can’t pay for their coverage, when people can’t access the care they should realistically be allowed to access, when the IPAB won’t approve treatment… Read more »

What planet do you live on, and is the motto on Gladd-world “my point is the only point”? You are just so lame with your Polly parrot retorts the law is just 900 pages, when the addendums count and have made it grow at least double the size, and, every else but you and your planet know what nancy Pelosi said before she manipulated the vote. Frankly, your rebuttals/retorts are 95% irrelevant to me. I’ll give you random chance that 1of 20 comments by you have meaning and legitimacy. I think you used that moment in a post about 2… Read more »

Will you argue with the Washington Post fact checker?

http://m.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/how-many-pages-of-regulations-for-obamacare/2013/05/14/61eec914-bcf9-11e2-9b09-1638acc3942e_blog.html

It notes it to be now about 10,000 pages with the regulatory addendums. Where you away when this was reported? Welcome back to earth?

want a cracker with that? You do not even address a well known media source noting this legislative insult has grown to 10,000 pages in 3 plus years? You are so lame, and a partisan hack. Back to you, nice try! Oh, how about you just ignore me and I will ignore you, after all, we should both practice the adage “if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.” As far as this law goes, saying nothing only empowers those who have nothing nice to offer the American people. That is not directed to Bobby Gladd, but,… Read more »
