Hill Staffers Warned: Just Because You Enrolled in Obamacare Doesn’t Mean You Actually Enrolled in Obamacare
December 11, 2013 - 2:05 pm
Hill staffers that signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C., healthcare exchange, called DC Health Link (DCHL), are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website.
The Hill obtained an email sent to staffers on Wednesday warning them that “it is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office.”
“Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL,” the email reads.
“Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office,” the email continues.
Hill workers had until Monday to sign up for healthcare in D.C., where members and their staffs are eligible for a generous employer healthcare subsidy from the government.
And now, they may not really have coverage.
The government’s towering incompetence just makes you want to give up sometimes, doesn’t it?
