Oregon Mother caught by “family glitch”

Oregon Mother: I Can’t Afford Obamacare For Myself, 1-Year-Old Son « CBS Seattle

The problem…

Holly’s husband works for a non-profit organization that pays for his health care, but the couple is unable to afford to have her and their son covered under his plan. And she’s been told their combined income is too much to qualify for a subsidized health care plan under Cover Oregon.

I have to read between the lines just a little bit, but the situation most likely is the following:

  1. Holly and her can be covered under her husband’s plan, it’s just too expensive
  2. Since the coverarge for Holly’s husband by itself is affordable, the plan is deemed affordable regardless of how much it costs to add Holly and her son.
  3. If 1  & 2 are true, then Holly and her son do NOT qualify for a subsidy.

Brings back Nancy Pelosi’s statement to the effect that “we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it”.
