You knew there'd be another one, right?
Parts of the Obamacare enrollment
system used to pay insurers are being pushed back from January
in the latest technology delay for the president’s U.S. health-care overhaul.
The administration is setting up a temporary process to
send companies the federal subsidies used to help millions of
Americans buy coverage because the online system won’t be ready
...The government’s original plans called for the federal
system to automatically determine consumer subsidies and issue
payments to insurers. Instead, the companies will submit
estimates that will be “trued up” by the government at a later
date, according to a CMS memo provided to Bloomberg News. The
work-around for insurers will be in place until the automatic
payment system is ready, though CMS has no specific date for the
fix, Albright said.
The estimated billings are expected to be close to the
actual payments to insurers...
So now the insurance companies have Obozo telling them that 'the check is in the mail' like he told everyone else that 'you can keep your plan.'
