No wonder it’s running smoother. It’s skipping the important parts...
Does the insurance company bill you or just debit your account?
As expected, they fixed the front end that everyone can see, but the back end which must communicate with other systems is still not working, or even written yet.
Meanwhile Obama & Carney are lying and will continue to lie, pretending it's all done.
It's the socialist way.
OK, this Obama lover has just been mugged. Now, does he have enough brain cells to realize he has been mugged and change his allegiance? Probably not or he wouldn’t be an Obama lover to begin with.
I have never looked at the site...never will. I do not want to get a headache, or have my computer infected by some Obumbo virus. Anyway, I am immune to Obamacare.
The important thing is they are now ‘covered’ and the insurance companies can no longer take that away.
Thanks to Obamacare.
The real culprit is that Obamacare does nothing, ZERO, nada to reduce cost. Actually it increases every one's out of pocket expenses with policies that cover totally unnecessary stuff. I got a huge sticker shock when I explored their web-site yesterday.
Let the web-site operate smoothly soon. Only then every one will realize they are screwed. My employer raised our health insurance by 20% for 2014 over 2013 rates. But my out of pocket expenses stayed the same. So there is a big dent in my discretionary spending.
This administration is fond of fantasies whether it be dealing with Iran or “reforming” heath care. Serious people however confront reality and do not tolerate delusions,
The widow is presented with a hospital bill in excess of $800,000 after she learns that the back office of the Obamacare program had miscommunicated with the insurance company had falsely advised the farmer and his widow that they had health insurance when in fact they had none.
It turns out of the hospital in the course of the next 90 days finds that it is under a pile of such cases amounting to millions of dollars in unpaid hospital services and they want to sue the widow and and take her farm. The widow turns to the government insurance plan and gets no help, in fact, she is dunned by the IRS for failure to have insurance as required by the Obamacare statute.
Scenarios similar to this are replicated in the tens of thousands during the days weeks and months immediately succeeding January 1, 2014.
Unfortunately for Bob, he can expect an audit letter from the IRS soon. It appears from the number of detractors that have made their obamascare headaches public that the IRS is making good use of the 40,000 new agents assigned to police the wuns wonder project, ja wohl.
How soon does Dear Reader simply decree that all applications are deemed approved and all doctors and hospitals are to accept such applications as fact and after a few protests, CEOs and other patients who fail to bend the knee are suddenly subject to the gentle ministrations of the IRS or a middle of the night raid?
Many folks have seen the ad for SAP at airports and also on TV in conjunction with the golf tournement they sponsor. SAP is one of the choices that Tier 1 corporations use to tie their supply, sales and human resouces functionality together. In the latest version there are over 100,000 individual transaction codes and over 300,000 individual tables. Does anyone really think that a bunch of hacks hired by the government because their leader was a classmate of moo shell could build something like this to support obamacare? When completed the Army logistics system which is transistioning to SAP will have over 150,000 users and is one of the biggest instances in the world.
Why on earth would anyone willingly give over all ther vital and finanial information to hackers and scammers? You have a poorly functioning website. It stands to reason that a poorly designed website is going to have zero effective security. Identity theft and all its related shenanigans will be the next major economic bubble, I think. Will news of such scamming be suppressed now by the government and its MSM? IS it being suppressed?
And if these people fall ill or are injured and have no coverage, who is to blame?
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were registered for Obamacare?
But now his personal information is packaged and posted online in a tidy little bundle, readily available to helpful navigators with no criminal background checks.
This will be a huge issue next year.
No hospital will deny emergency service when it is realized the coverage is not real.
But everything else will come to a halt while the paperwork is sifted through. Even in past years, this was a major headache. But usually you’d be dealing with private companies and there was some measure of expediency.
Now someone somewhere will have to contact a non-existant government agency regarding an unkown...a non-payment of a subsidy, or a change in eligiblity status, or some other factor never before involved in the equation. Like income. Each phone call will take hours. Every step of verification will take days or weeks. Who will pay for all this labor? The receptionist at the doctor’s office? The pharmacy tech? Meanwhile the lines back up.
They can’t even get people registered on the website. In a few weeks on Jan 1st, they’ll have support staff trained and capable to handle customer service?
Say, someone (was insured but cancelled) attempts to go through the ObamaCare process, fails due to site issues - has a major heart attack on January 2, 2014?
