Past Musings from The Lady

North Carolina’s Senator Kay Hagan went dark for nine days during the shut down.
Hagan went dark again over the few past weeks while Americans coast to coast, including North Carolinians, wrestled with Obamacare roll out failures, canceled policies and skyrocketing rates.
Hagan only came out of hiding yesterday evening to tweet what she refused to say during the shut down — well, sort of. Instead of a delay, she’s calling for “extended enrollment”.
That’s not just flip-flopping — that’s a Triple Lindy. Continue reading
My current insurance ends on December 31st and I’m not sure what insurance program I can or will be on. October 1st I went on to the Health Care Exchange site to “see what was in it”. (Kinda like Nancy Pelosi, but not). Like the majority of Americans I ran into the “Please Be Patient”, and “We are experiencing a lot of Traffic” page. I couldn’t even get to the site to create a profile for my Log In. It wasn’t until 11:30 pm that night I finally broke through the glitches and exhaustive wait time to accomplish my task of creating my user profile so I could then check out what the A.C.A. had to offer. After the steps of providing my email, creating a user name, password, and setting up security questions I received an email back after midnight on Wednesday Oct. 2nd stating:
Your Marketplace account has been created. There is one more step left before you can use your account. Click on this link to verify your email address…
I clicked on the link provided and was sent to the Log In screen, typed in my user name and password and waited. Nothing. I tried this again twice a day every day until this morning. I went on to the exchange site, got to the log in screen and the system did not recognize my user name nor password and prompted me to start over. Right at about that point I was not happy, nor in the mood to fight it; so I started over. Then I was notified that the email used is already in the system. I will not repeat the expletives yelled at my computer. My last-ditch effort was to open the “Live Chat” function on the screen and speak to one of the Navigators. Here is what transpired over the 12 minute conversation. Continue reading
The highly controversial Affordable Care Act made it’s debut Tuesday October 1st in a not-so desirable fashion. The enrollment has been riddled with wait times that make the DMV look like a fast food drive-thru and log in problems so severe that the majority of those trying to access the site just give up. Stories have been pouring into news outlets, posted on social media sites, and by word of mouth on the frustrations and mega-glitches that have plagued the A.C.A. for the past two days. However, there was one story that appeared yesterday that caught my attention and it came from Illinois.
According to an article in the Chicago Tribune, one woman was able to get passed the waiting and log in fiasco just by being patient. Kathy Kanak, a 57-year-old resident of Libertyville, Illinois, part-time library employee and marathon runner was able to get online and enroll herself and her husband Brant Kanak into the Illinois Health Exchange. What was the secret? Here are her words to the Tribune: Continue reading
