Obamacare Close to Reaching ‘Holy Sh*t Moment’

Thank you for visiting!
After two weeks, Healthcare.gov still isn’t working. People try to log on and….no luck.
Obama’s administration does not disclose exactly what is wrong with the website. Or when we can expect it to get fixed.
And time is running out! If things aren’t resolved in three weeks, we’ve got some serious, serious problems,” said Timothy Jost, a law professor and health care reform expert.
He added that if [Obamacare] collapses, it could be another generation before things get fixed.
And what then? Where does that leave the American people who can’t afford their own insurance, and who desperately need it?
The stakes are definitely higher for people who are uninsured, and for families who buy insurance directly. It’s also high stakes for the whole health insurance industry.
If people cannot get insurance through a functioning health exchange, they will remain shut out of the system. Americans who buy their own health insurance will see major disruptions in their health care.
Health insurance and health care providers may face a huge bulk of requests from people who do sign up through the system. And it could be of nightmarish proportions.
And of course, people who can’t sign up will face tax penalties.
This could really discredit the presidency; and his supporters will be left wondering where to go from here.
So far visitors of healthcare.gov are not able to create accounts, verify themselves, apply for tax credits if they are low income households, or shop for health plans.
Some people have been given paper applications, but those will eventually have to be entered into a computer system.
People have until December 15th to choose a plan for January 1st, and until February 15th to avoid the fines. The 2014 enrollment ends March 31st.
“We really do need to get this thing resolved pretty quickly. And then, of course, the longer you wait to resolve it, the more you have piling up for the last minute with the risk of another crash,” Jost said.
Some feel it would be best to take the site down and start over. It just goes to show what a train wreck Healthcare.gov and Obamacare really are.
There are 48 million Americans who are uninsured. This is the demographic Obamacare was created for, but they are not getting the care they need.
A lot of the health care products on the market are being discontinued because they don’t meet Obamacare standards. And people who have these plans may see rates go up next year.
Tax credits aren’t available without the federal system as well so good luck with getting them.
Many of the people who do sign up for Obamacare are very sick and will be expensive to treat. Getting more healthy people signed up to balance things out would be ideal, but how can they sign up?
It is definitely getting close to a “holy sh*t moment..
