Not so quick on the new improved Obamacare application

Applying for Obamacare | Power Line.

Read the link and decided if you wish to answer this question…

But back to the new, 11-page form. It contains a strong warning not in the earlier, 21-page draft: “I’m signing this application under penalty of perjury . . . I know that I may be subject to penalties under federal law if I provide false and or untrue information.” That threat may unsettle applicants already not sure they’re correctly answering complicated questions. If they don’t, the consequences could be costly….

There are TWENTY EIGHT options for family relationships. Once can only imagine what happens after that.

Scott Johnson at Powerline concludes…

The story of the Obamacare application is perfectly representative of the thoroughgoing dishonesty that has permeated the Obama administration’s peddling of Obamacare. It is also perfectly representative of the media’s service as the Obama administration’s handmaiden in peddling the administration’s falsehoods.  (emphasis added)

It’s beginning to look like my prediction of Obamacare chaos is too kind.


Unravel Obamacare and You Get a Train Wreck

Unravel Obamacare and You Get a Train Wreck.

Back to the Obama press conference yesterday…

“For the 85 to 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance,” Obama helpfully informed his audience, “they’re already experiencing most of the benefits of the Affordable Care Act — even if they don’t know it.” Insisting that the implementation has already been accomplished for the already-insured, Obama claimed, “Now they don’t have to worry about anything else.”

Nonsense, scoffed Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler. “There are a variety of studies and reports that suggest that, beyond those groups, some 10 million people face the prospect of losing their current health care,” Kessler said in rebuttal to the President’s remarks.

It’s just not a pretty picture. Follow the link to read about:

  • Obamacare applicattion and extensive documentation on tangible assets, alimony and tips for your job
  • Employees being relagated to part time status
  • Reductions in Medicare reimbursements leading to fewer providers

Chaos is coming. Obamacare unleashes a trainwreck. What’s not to like?


Obamacare application instructions

61 pages long plus videos! You can NOT make this stuff up.

It’s easier to apply for green card than Obamacare.

No fooling! The good news!?? The draft application is only 15 to 21 pages long.

Adams recommends that consumers start the application process right away when the exchanges open in October, because as 2014 approaches, the deadline for when all Americans must have health insurance, the rush of last-minute applicants may bring the enrollment websites crashing down. “Our fear is that people are going to put it off til New Year’s Eve, and by then the sites will be overloaded and Navigators will be overloaded,” Adams says.

Ya think? Also, I’d use a health insurance agent that’s worked in the field awhile, not a newly trained “Navigator”. Your costs will be the same.

Counterpoint: The 21-Page Health Exchange Application Form: Not A Burden

Finishing the task would take slightly more effort than watching cartoons, and that’s where the trouble starts.  Sadly, we are a nation stooping to the lowest common denominator of everything and apparently that holds true for the most important annual purchase that any family will make.

Simply put, the 21-page form is as simple as it can reasonably be, and anyone who can’t fill it out will get help.  It’s worth looking at, because Connecticut plans to use the federal version — states are allowed to design their own if they want — and because this whole flap about the complexity of the forms is nothing but political posturing by people who want Obamacare to go away, or to offer even more services to lazy Americans who now must exert a little bit of effort to deal with their well-being.

Well, I don’t know but we’ll find out soon enough.
