Skip to comments.Ooops: State Health Benefits Site Gave 8,000 People Bum Premium Quotes
Posted on 10/25/2013 7:11:18 PM PDT by CreviceTool
The Washington state health exchange site was the toast of the communistic-takeover-of-healthcare town for a while. But now the cancer that is the federal governments botched roll out of the Affordable Care Act has spread to the Evergreen state.
Washingtons Heath Benefits Exchange said today that a miscommunication between it and the federal government caused the online system to quote health care premiums that were lower than what people were actually entitled to. The exchange says 8,000 people were affected. We have a call in to see how far off the calculations were.
The customers affected will be receiving letters informing them that they were quoted wrong. We humbly suggest that right-wing radio in town call these Obummer Letters.

This is the company run by The First Lady’s BFF and
Valerie Jarrett’s child. What could possibly go wrong?
As Elmer Fudd said, “Be vewy quiet! We are bait and switching.”
So if you went and cancelled your current insurance to be effective on Jan 1st, what happens if the new quote is more than your current insurance? Can you back to the old insurance?
If a private company had done this, there would be at least twenty separate class-action lawsuits in the works at this very moment.
The media were bragging about how well the Washington state website was working. LOL!
And at the hearings on Obamacare yesterday it was revealed that the website is deliberately giving 49 year olds quotes for 27 year olds, and 64 year olds quotes for 50 year olds - imagine the surprise when those folks get the real bills......
Unfortunately for those 8000 saps, once your in, you can’t get out. Kind of like the mafia.
Dear Mr. Dupe,
Congratulations on being our 1 millionth customer to the web site - you were awarded the prize of being first to sign up. We understand that the policy you contracted to purchase was listed at $356/month, but that was a minor error. The actual price is $3,560/month. I hope you take this as a simple and harmless misunderstanding because you signed a contract and that contract is now part of the law of the land. In other words, you are stuck...schmuck.
