HealthCare.gov canít handle appeals of enrollment errors
Washington Post ^ | February 2, 2014 | Amy Goldstein

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.

For now, the appeals are sitting, untouched, inside a government computer. And an unknown number of consumers who are trying to get help through less formal means — by calling the health-care marketplace directly — are 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.....

It’s a shame to have a 2014 election victory built upon human misery.

Paving the way for “single-payer”...

Errors are designed into the system in all probability to maximize discontent, and eventual clamor to replace...

“hey, let’s put the entire country, illegals, legals... EVERYBODY on expanded medicare! (except the usual pols, aides, staff, 0care authors)”

So what's coming??? IMHO....the solution will be another deduction right out of your paycheck....cuz that's who is paying anyways...

This signup is just mining all your accounts (which you have given them access to) FOREVER.

The problem has and will continue to be.....Medicaid as part of Medicare. All those people who pay/paid into Medicare.....you're being robbed. It's why you need supplements and separate Prescription.

22,000 almost equals the number of those who signed up - eh?

“Huh, I’m seeing obamacare ads on tv. Guess the regime has the money for that!”

All part of the plan...
Buy the media’s loyalty with hundreds of millions of taxpayer-paid ads. Don’t play ball, and those ads, and the revenue stream, get canceled....

Using your own money against you, all part of the great Socialist plan, set down by Salinger, Zinn, and Alinsky. Read what George Wiley, the founder of the National Welfare Rights Organization (Later became ACORN/SEIU), wrote...

I devoutly believe that Obamacare will be chronicled in history as a blunder of Ceausescuian proportions.

THE STUPID DEFENSE (hey, it works in Chicagoland): "Obama Says He Didn’t Lie, He Just "Didn’t Understand" How Obamacare Worked....

As Confucious say: " 'Tis far better to admit to being a blithering idiot than to own up to impeachable offenses---

<><> using presidential power to throw millions of Americans off health insurance plans,

<><> leaving very ill Americans without any access to needed care,

<><> throwing $billions at a useless web site and state exchanges,

<><> hiring felons and criminals as O/Care navigators,

<><> bailing out insurers left high and dry w/ false promises.

========================================

OBAMA'S UNMITIGATED CONTEMPT FOR THE CITIZENRY--that we, the people, would actually believe the White House spin. Chicagoland criminals get away with this in their sordid city---the con artists have no idea how insulting they are to we, the people. They don't even know we see through their Chicagoland cons.

Conclusive proof that liberals should NEVER, EVER get their filthy hands on political power---they're too stupid to know how to use it.

Paul Krugman says this stuff is not really happenning, it’s all just conservatives making noise about a really successful government program.
