In general, previous matters should be resolved before a new initiative is launched.
That is especially true when it is dealing with the public’s money. The American taxpayer dollar should always be husbanded and protected. It should be the commitment from all who serve the public.
But that has certainly not turned out to be the case with The Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, in settling discrepancies in income for applications.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), income data issues have resolved for roughly 467,000 of 1.2 million households who are now receiving health insurance through ObamaCare. Another 430,000 are, as CMS puts it, “in the process of being resolved,” which means that fraud could be taking place. If income is misstated, then subsidies are received that should not be by those with the policy.
This is happening, or not happening, with the new enrollment period starting on November 15.
Based on its track record, it is difficult to believe that the 430,000 open cases will be resolved by November 15 when the new enrollees are registered. That immigration matters are involved does not make this process easier. There are nearly 300, 000 immigration cases that have to be cleared up to determine eligibility. The poor record in processing the applications is just another trouble spot with ObamaCare.
The inability to resolve these income issues shows that there are problems literally coming and going with the HealthCare.Gov, the Federal Government website, and other aspects of The Affordable Care Act. Articles continue to detail how HealthCare.Gov is beset by woes. Those occur in the application process. Now there issues after the application has been completed for ObamaCare.
Billions and billions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted as a result of The Affordable Care Act.
These range from websites that did not work to subsidies that should not be received. Both elections and the new enrollment period are coming up in November. Both with have much to say about the progress of ObamaCare.
