Tomahawk513: Eddie Adams from Torrance: Obama said I could keep my doctor, but now he's in jail for Medicare fraud.

Why did Fartbongo lie to me?

He said I could keep mine, too, but he was 87 and passed away unexpectedly.  Why did Fartbongo lie to me, too?


Obama said I could keep my doctor too, so in order to make sure of it, I have her preserved in creosote in a 50 gallon drum in the back yard.

Hey, Farkers:

Thanks for all the 'get well' wishes.

I'm doing really well. Yeah, I have no immune system; but I write code from home, so it ain't too bad. A year from now... it'll just be a bad memory.
I'm really weak (a month in a hospital will do that to you).
I had some 'near death' experiences in the hospital (yeah, there were some screw-ups), but the Bone Marrow transplant did save my life.

All in all: worst vacation ever. Would not recommend this travel agency.

SlothB77: Here's a real Obamacare horror story.

Basich, 62, bought a plan through the state's Nevada Health Link insurance exchange in the fall. He's been paying monthly premiums since November.
Yet the Las Vegan is stranded in a no-man's-land where no carrier claims him, and his tab is mounting: Basich owes $407,000 for care received in January and February, when his policy was supposed to be in effect. Instead, he's covered only for March and beyond.
Basich said he began trying to enroll on Oct. 1, the day the exchange website went live. Like many consumers, he fought technical flaws during multiple sign-up attempts. In mid-November he finally got through and chose his plan: UnitedHealthcare's MyHPNSilver1.
"It was like reaching the third level of Doom," Basich said of the torturous sign-up process.
Basich paid his first premium on Nov. 21, and within days the exchange withdrew the $160.77 payment from his money-market savings account. Because Basich paid a month before the Dec. 23 deadline, his coverage was to begin Jan. 1.
Weeks ticked by, but Basich received nothing to confirm he had insurance. Nevada Health Link kept telling him he was enrolled, but UnitedHealthcare said he wasn't in their system.
Basich's predicament went critical on Dec. 31, when he had a heart attack. His treatment, which included a triple bypass on Jan. 3, resulted in $407,000 in medical bills in January and February that no insurer is covering.
Basich and his insurance broker, Tamar Burch of Branch Benefits Consultants, said the issue appears to be confusion at the state exchange. Xerox's system says Basich chose a plan from another insurer, Nevada Health CO-OP, even though Basich has paperwork that shows he selected MyHPNSilver1. In short, Xerox can't seem to decide where Basich belongs, Burch said.
So the exchange is trying to compromise, putting Basich with Nevada Health CO-OP for January and February, when he incurred his bills, and with UnitedHealthcare from this month on. But CO-OP officials ...


So Xerox f*cked up AT THE STATE LEVEL and that's the ACA's fault?

I've noticed they've changed the cancer patient ad in MI since word got out it was mostly full of shait.

The new add now laments about how the Democratic senator was attacking her (for lying on a tv ad) and now instead of "Obamacare is killing me" she just now says she liked her old plan better and shouldn't have been forced to changed, because the truth was her Obamacare plan was cheaper over the course of a year but her monthly out-of-pocket was no longer a fixed amount.
Oh and the new ad also has more dramatic music then before.

zetar: Just for the record:

Couldn't get health insurance pre-ACA because of a 'pre-exiting' condition.
Got a really great health insurance policy (with a subsidy) ~ $250 a month.
The insurance policy became effective 1/1/14.
Got approved - by my new insurance company, no problems - for a Bone Marrow Transplant on 1/3/14.
Got a Bone Marrow Transplant on 1/17/14.

I'm home from the hospital and alive. And, yeah, without the ACA I would be going into a slow death spiral now.


When does the Death Panel have your scheduled for euthanasia?

SlothB77: sdd2000: It could be lots of things that caused his glitch. But the question is how is this man any worse off by virtue of the ACA then he would have been under the old system? The two insurance companies, the hospital and possibly the nevada exchange will have to sort this out, but he with the exception of some frustration in figuring out who actually covers him of the two companies is certainly no worse off than before the ACA went into effect. Neither is the hospital system any worse off. So what is your problem with the law now?

if he had insurance before without glitches and confusion, then he is.  the article does not say whether his new plan is more expensive or less expensive than his previous plan.


You know if my aunt had been born with testicles she might of been my uncle.

 I think the article shows he has insurance now, it is just everyone figuring out which company is responsible. Even if he had insurance before and it was less expensive by even a large amount of $1000 more per month (a ridiculous amount) is he much worse off by being $410,000 as opposed to the $407,000 in alleged debt that might be the case if two insurance companies  pre ACA were undergoing the same fight?

SlothB77: kronicfeld: SlothB77: Here's a real Obamacare horror story.

Not even close. Two different insurers are arguing over which applies. One of them will be responsible. This is a simple change in coverage problem, not at all endemic to "Obamacare." And, incidentally, every single person receiving medical treatment "owes" every cent they're charged by a health care provider until their health insurer actually pays out.

or it could be an issue with the information the state exchange is sending to insurers:

Nevada Health Link kept telling him he was enrolled, but UnitedHealthcare said he wasn't in their system.

perhaps the glitchy state exchange is sending the wrong enrollment data to the insurers?

Satanic_Hamster: Karac: Or it was like Sean Hannity's horror story.

-calls the Obamacare phone number-
recording: "Thank you for calling the healthcare.gov phone line. What state do you live in."
SH: "Hello, my name is Sean. What's yours?"
recording: "I'm sorry, I didn't understand that. Could you repeat the name of the state in which you live?"
SH: "Hello, my name is Sean. What's yours?" to listeners: "This things sucks - they're operators are so stupid they don't even know their own names!"

Wait, what?  Is that actually exact quotes....?  Did he at least play it up like slapstick?


The last part to the listeners isn't an exact quote, merely what he was trying to express by his tone.  And I'm not sure on what the recording was saying.

But the part about repeatedly asking an obvious recording what is its name is - that's a direct quote.
