Bad Day in ObamacareLand

How do you know if you are having a bad day in ObamacareLand? The president is treating his fubar_healthcaresignature legislation like a red-haired step-child.

There’s no way to tell how many people who think they’ve signed up for health insurance through the U.S. exchange actually have, after about 1 in 4 enrollments sent to insurers from the federal website had garbled included incomplete information.

IJ Review

25% of ObamacareLand applicants only THINK they have insurance.

California is currently buried under more than 20,000 incomplete paper applications for health insurance through the Golden State’s online marketplace, Covered California.

When the exchanged opened up, website glitches forced them to accept paper applications, which run to 32 pages, and take an estimated 90 minutes each to input because the website is so slow.

Well that’s a bummer.

But wait, there’s more.

“In other states, Medicare pays doctors $76 for return-office visits. But in California, Medi-Cal’s reimbursement is $24. In other states, doctors receive between $500 to $700 to perform a tonsillectomy. In California, they get $160.”

There is no joy in ObamacareLand. Mighty Barack has struck out.
