Washington Post: Thousands of HealthCare.gov sign-ups didn’t make it to insurers



I'm actually an advocate of true national healthcare, but this whole Obamacare fiasco is an ongoing, enormous clusterf*ck. The administration that can't get the website right, but they want us to entrust our healthcare to them?

quote:

Enrollment records for close to 15,000 HealthCare.gov shoppers were not initially transmitted to the insurance plans they selected, according to a preliminary federal estimate to be released Saturday.

While these cases pose a challenge for the Obama administration, officials say they believe the situation is improving. Since early December, fewer than 1 percent of HealthCare.gov enrollments did not make their way to health insurance plans.

quote:

Of particular concern to health insurers were so-called "orphan files" -- situations in which a shopper thought he or she had signed up but the exchange did not notify the carrier. While insurance plans could plausibly correct inaccurate data, they could not get coverage to a subscriber they did not know existed.

During the first two weeks of October, the new federal analysis estimates, nearly 10 percent of enrollments were missing an 834 transmission. That number rose to 15 percent in mid-October before steadily declining through November.

Yeah, this is a giant nightmare for supporters of National Healthcare. One step forward, two steps back.

Why are you a proponent of national healthcare of any kind? What part of a nationalized anything is a success in this country?

Economics.

I'd rather see us stop invading foreign countries and instead use the money to give healthcare to our citizens. We already insure the poor, the military, and the elderly. Why not insure those who are actually paying for all that?

Ask someone in the military how good their healthcare is and if they would rather have something else. I do not want the federal government providing anything for me. The ACA is their fast track method to getting nationalized care, but it will be ten times more of a clusterfrick than the ACA has been the last two months. This is is disaster in the making.

This is such contradiction.

"On one hand, I want single payer"

"Gov't f**ks things up"

Here's a novel concept - "stop invading foreign countries" and let the people who were paying for those invasions keep their money and use it for whatever they wish.

I'd be fine with that too.

Oh please. My father was career military. I did five years myself. Military provided health care got the job done for his family and mine.

I know a fair number of people in the military, both retired and active. I don't know any of them who think their health care is a bad deal. I hear them complain at times about having to wait in the doctor's waiting room too long, but that's true with any health care plan.

Why should I have to settle for something that "got the job done" when I'm happy with my current coverage while trying to provide coverage for everyone else that can't provide it for themselves? Why should my family suffer in order to provide every tom, dick, and Hunberto that are not in the working class and or illegal immigrants that don't pay into the system?

Piss on anything nationalized. You should realize this if you in fact did serve five years in the military. This country is going to hell in a hand basket in front of your eyes and your five years were a complete waste of time if you can get behind nationalized healthcare.

The same, it's like anything else at this place, god forbid we get together for the greater good. Makes me wonder how we have survived as a nation at times. But then I remember most of the guys on here and their attitudes are the minority.

Ever serve your country? Do ANYTHING because it was the right thing to do? Not because you were getting anything out of it because of your sacrifice. You are the problem...me me me...self-centered, entitled, American.

And you wonder why we continue to fall further behind the rest of the world.

WSJ had an article today that explains how sign ups are not real numbers. You have to look at people who actually succeeded in reaching the website, then chose a plan, than paid first month's premium.

Sebellius will not release that number. It might be 4.

The only reason for not releasing the number is political dishonesty.

No I have not served and did not for numerous reasons. The first and foremost is because I graduated high school and went to college for a career. Following the government's orders of where my life was headed was not in my deck of cards.

Have I ever done anything because it was the right thing to do? Yes and I'm a much better person for it today.

Self centered because I work my arse off for what I have and don't want anyone taking that, especially those that don't contribute :

excuse given by an entitled American. It's the land of the free, you choose not to serve.

Well there is that.

Right because the majority of those who are on welfare, without health care are the leeches of society.

Turn off fox news and try actually talking to people who have less then you, you might be surprised that most of the poor out there are "working poor" who work their arse off.

Sounds like a good job, if you can get it.
