Utah Man With Critically Ill Son Gives Up On Enrolling For Obamacare After More Than 50 Attempts

Sign-up for Obamacare failure


While most of the media has turned the corner and is putting a more positive spin on the disaster that is Obamacare, some, even in the liberal media are still reporting on the real and very frustrating circumstances when real people who need real care try and sign up. The bottom line, Obamacare and the joke of a website taxpayers got for $1 billion is far from even slightly working on a consistent basis even when the Obama regime is lying about the website working.

And even when the Obama administration trots out a success story for Obamacare and someone using the website to get coverage, more times that not, that turns out to be a lie as well.

Well, here's another story of what a frustrating fiasco it has been for one individual to try and sign up his son, who has coordination and speech problems, for Obamacare. After 3 applications and more than 50 phone calls to get signed up through the Healthcare.gov website or through the phone calls previously mentioned, this individual simply gave up trying to buy healthcare for his son because he couldn't get anywhere.

People can't even sign up for Obamacare because of the incredibly frustrating hoops they have to jump through and phone calls that seem to go nowhere, how in God's green Earth is our incompetent government and equally incompetent President Obama going to run the entire healthcare system? How can that possibly work?

Read more below on this story from The Washington Post. And remember, they are liberal.

After three months and more than 50 phone calls, John Gisler gave up on buying coverage through HealthCare.gov.

Gisler wanted to purchase a plan for his 45-year-old son, who has a rare degenerative condition affecting his coordination and speech. His current coverage through Utah’s high-risk insurance pool plan ends Dec. 31. By that time, the Obama administration expects enrollees to transition into health plans sold through the new health-care law.

But so far, Gisler hasn’t succeeded in purchasing coverage — but not for a lack of effort.

“We’ve had three separate applications that failed to make it through,” Gisler says. “I have a notebook with all the calls I’ve made, maybe 50 or 100. It just goes on and on.”

Earlier this week, Gisler quit trying. Worried about a potential gap in coverage, he decided to forgo his son’s $3,000 tax credit and buy outside of the exchange from a local insurance broker.

“We have a son who is critically ill,” he says. “We cannot take any chances. Not having insurance would, in no short order, lead our family to bankruptcy.”

The Affordable Care Act is designed to expand health insurance coverage. But the law’s insurance cancellations mixed with the Web site’s problems might leave some people who have coverage now uninsured in the new year.
