For any given Daily Mail article the burden of proof is on the author to demonstrate

1) that he or she isn't lying out of his ass
2) that he or she should not be hunted for sport from helicopters.

How does one enroll in the Affordable Care Act?

I thought you enrolled with an insurance company, and if you don't pay, they drop you, then you pay the tax penalty; unless you're really poor, then you're exempt from having to purchase it but probably qualify for Medicare anyways.

So you signed up for a service with a private company and you want to cancel it.  Instead of going to the private company and working it out with them, you complain about the website that just showed you what plan you could by and took your information to expedite the process? Ok...yep, totally Obama's fault.

what a joke.
families that cannot afford to visit a doctor now have to make monthly insurance payments, and still cannot afford to see a doctor due to the high deductibles.

obama and the rest of the libtards are idiots.

Good luck trying to do anything with it or not with it.


crab66: Surely contacting the private company that sold you the insurance is out of the question.

Probably never happened anyway. Just more tabloid garbage for blogs and chain emails to keep the racist hate flowing.

Am curious how many people like you have actually tried dealing with this particular system in any capacity. The entire thing is one big responsibility shrug fest. Live help can't help you with anything other than good conversation, phone help directs you to mail in things and though you have a deliver receipt they tell you so sorry too bad, call this number. You call that other number and you get another clueless dipshiat.

So it runs exactly like all government agencies. Overpaid assholes that do the least amount of work to keep from getting let go or just bored enough to do what they can to fark with you.

Lets keep hearing how awesome this new system is though.


On the old system, I would apply and would nearly immediately receive rejection notices saying that I wasn't pregnant enough to be covered by even the most basic health plans.

Through this new system, yes I did end up having to mail something in and make somebody else do the work, but I wasn't rejected. I even got my card yesterday.

So yes, single payer would be best, but this new system is leaps and bounds better than the old one. You'd have to have your head buried pretty deep underground to not realize that.

You know I don't see any outrage from Fox (The Mail is owned by Fox and they had this same story running on FoxNews earlier) that with an employer plan they generally won't let you make changes (e.g. drop your coverage) unless there's a "qualifying event". So if I decide I don't want to pay the premium for my family anymore I have to wait until "open enrollment" until I can.

/of course fake story is fake anyway.

//Try dealing with regular insurance and let us know how successful you are.


Require voters to go get a photo ID, that's the equivalent of the Bataan Death March. Make it a six-week ordeal culminating in a 100-mile drive to cancel a simple insurance policy, and no biggie. The left really defines situational ethics.

FTFA:
'I thought it would be fairly simple, I called my insurance provider and they informed me they couldn't cancel my federal exchange policy and that I would have to  do that through the exchange,'

Ms Hill was told by an ObamaCare operator that she needed to call her insurance company, who passed her back to the Federal Exchange.

Ms Hill claims the terminate button on Obamacare's website did not work, and that she spent 'several hours a day' on hold with the Health Insurance Marketplace.


It's Obama's law, he fought for it, got it, signed it, and has touted it ever since. You can try to blame-shift and deny the obvious, but nobody's buying it.

If you don't officially cancel the old coverage you can't sign up for another plan.  It can take months before an insurance company drops you for non-payment.

Well, that doesn't sound like the efficiency I'm promised by capitalism.


Funny how when capitalists team up with government to force people to buy their products, everything goes to shiat, huh?

Isn't it ironic that they're trying to paint ACA as single payer and go ZOMG COMMUNIZMZ...when single-payer would probably be preferred?


Articles like this are an excellent endorsement for a single payer system. If people aren't bright enough to sign up for or cancel their health insurance, let's remove that obstacle.

Finally, Ms Hill drove to her insurance company's head quarter in Kansas City, 100 miles from her home, and they were able to help her cancel her 'Obamacare' plan.

So basically the phone operators at her insurance company didn't know squat and kept passing her back and forth.

I'm disappointed that the Boobies wasn't "FAKE". Since this has all the hallmarks of a classic FAKE thread from the Daily Fail.


Since all it takes to have all the needed Daily Fail hallmarks for fake is to actually be on the Daily Fail, writing "FAKE" isn't all that needed.

It's funny when The Daily Mail comments are flooded with US Free Republic fruitcakes, and suddenly the regular UK derp-a-herps there find themselves the sensible logical side of the argument, red arrowing the Americans.
