The Times reports on the latest Saturday ObamaCare bad news:
Enrollment Errors Cut, Officials Say; Fixes Are Overstated, Insurers Report
By Robert Pear
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said Saturday that it had reduced the error rate in enrollment data sent to insurance companies under the new health care law, even as insurers said that files they received from the government in the last few days were riddled with mistakes.
Trouble in paradise! And lest the significance elude you (buying insurance is complicated, after all), the Times breaks it down:
The quality of the data is important; it could affect the ability of people to get medical care and prescription drugs when they go to doctors’ offices and pharmacies starting next month.
Really? You mean doctors and pharamcists and insurers actually need that info for billing purposes? What happened to exhortations to rely on the kindness of strangers?
MAybe an illustrative example would have helped First Reader grasp this. If I subscribe to the Times by way of their website but they don't communicate my home address correctly to the delivery team, the paper will end up in my neighbor's driveway and eventually find its way to their puppy rather than my parakeet, so where is the value added, hmm?
Well, Obama's staff won't be giving him the bad news, but maybe he will notice this tidbit in the Times.
