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.

  1. 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, if you are a strong benefactor and benefactee of this law…

  2. 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 weeks ago, and I haven’t commented since ’til now.

    Is your shuttle preparing to return you back soon?

    Oh, and if the legislation was just 900 pages, even reading 10 pages a day means it would have been read in 3 months. But, on this planet, we are coming up on 47 months now since it was forced, er, passed by pure partisan vote. Is that how politics works on Gladd-world too?

  3. “I’m sure there will be more revealing things found in those several thousand pages of legislation”

    906 pages, with 2.5″ margins.

  4. 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 interventions that physicians ask for, and when people start to die from not being able to be treated, yeah,that will be the inevitable comment from the Democrats:

    “We forgot the part where that’s our problem”.

    What a wonderful ending to a story line started with “Hope and change”.

    Yeah, those trivial details to what Obama meant when he used those words, let me take a stab at filling it in now:

    “I HOPE you won’t notice the major CHANGES I will make in your day to day lives, because I am not interested in leading or representing you, the people, but, MISLEADING and RESENTING you.”

    Tyranny, what a bitch when you have to play games, eh?

    I’m sure there will be more revealing things found in those several thousand pages of legislation, hmm, folks?!
