Health Insurance Official Testifies Before Congress: Many of Obamacare’s “Eight Million Enrollees” Are Actually Duplicates…
BIG NEWS folks… Obama lied. *sarcasm* No seriously Obama LIED about the number of enrollees to Obamacare…
Confirmed: The “eight million enrollments” is even more inflated than we initially believed.
In a House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations subcommittee hearing this morning, a major health insurance trade association representative testified that the administration is reporting inflated enrollment numbers.
According to their testimony:
“Duplicate enrollments: Because of the challenges that surfaced with the launch of the Exchanges in October 2013, some consumers were advised to create a new account and enroll again. As a result, insurers have many duplicate enrollments in their system for which they never received any payment. In cases where an insurer has a new enrollment for a consumer who previously enrolled, they are not expecting that original policy to be effectuated — even though that data is still reported.”
In other words, due to website glitches, some individuals may have enrolled multiple times. In these cases, the government may count all of these enrollments toward the total enrollment number. The insurer, knowing that the individual enrolled multiple times, will count that individual as having paid.
Democrats seem to do pretty well with the vote counts too.
