Obamacare 'enrollee' claims a total hoax; insurers have no record of many

(NaturalNews) We here at Natural News have spent quite a bit of virtual "ink" reporting on the lies and deceit, the pitfalls and the problems, of Obamacare.

In recent months, we've reported that the president lied about what the law would and would not do; about how you can't keep your current plan (or your doctor); about how deductibles are going to skyrocket for millions; about how premiums are going up, not down, for scores; and how the individual mandate, which has been unconstitutionally delayed by the president, and the employer mandate (ditto on the unconstitutionality) will eventually come back to haunt the remainder of Americans insured either privately or by employers (oh, at about the time of the 2014 elections).

Now, it appears, the nightmare continues, as Obamacare enrollees discover that their insurers have no record of them ever signing up. As reported by The Associated Press:

Record-keeping snags could complicate the start of insurance coverage this month as people begin using policies they purchased under President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

Insurance companies are still trying to sort out cases of so-called health insurance orphans, customers for whom the government has a record that they enrolled, but the insurer does not.


When the wave of millions hits, orphans are expected to grow dramatically

Notice - "record-keeping snags." And this is from a system that was supposed to be up and running and fully functional three months ago.

The report goes on to say that the federal government has everything under control. No worries:

Government officials say the problem is real but under control, with orphan records being among the roughly 13,000 problem cases they are trying to resolve with insurers. But insurance companies are worried the process will grow more cumbersome as they deal with the flood of new customers who signed up in December as enrollment deadlines neared.

The report said insurers for some 13,000 Americans have no record of their sign-up; however, the number could actually be much higher, given the chronic problems with online Obamacare exchanges on the state and federal level.

What's more, insurers aren't buying the government's "all is well" excuse. In fact, AP notes that insurance companies are seeing a range of bureaucratic "glitches" - such as the government assigning the same ID number to more than one person, "as well as 'ghost' files in which the insurer has an enrollment record but the government does not," AP reported.

Files where the insurer has no record of the customer signing up are called "orphan files," and they are of particular concern because insurers have no automated way of identifying the alleged policyholder. To ID them, insurers must manually compare enrollee lists to lists that are sent to them by the government, because the government - you guessed it - has never built an automated system of cross-checking records. So you can imagine how much extra this is costing insurers - and the insured - in worker hours.

More lies by government 'spokesmen'

"It's an ongoing concern," Robert Zirkelbach, a spokesman for the industry trade group America's Health Insurance Plans, told AP. "Health plans can't process enrollments they haven't received from the exchange."

As is always the case, some government mouthpiece says those in the industry actually dealing with this problem - don't really have a problem.

"We have fixed the issues that we knew were a problem, and we are now seeing nearly zero errors in the work moving forward," lied Julie Bataille, communications director for the federal healthcare rollout.

Despite the government's denials, the insurance companies know that they are in for much worse. As the wave of some 2 million enrollees in the online exchanges begin to hit in the coming weeks, they "worry that the back-end problems will grow more acute," AP reported.
