The latest Obama.Care fumble-flop award goes to California's own Covered-California.

Seems their bureaucracy boondoggle is accomplishing two things.

1. The 1095 tax forms contain many errors.

2. many people expecting the 1095 tax forms don't even have them yet despite a Feb 2nd deadline for mailing.

What a mess people will have to go through now.

All in the name of "Compliance".

Covered California Sends Out Nearly 100,000 Tax Forms Containing Errors, Others Deal With Missing Forms

Tens of thousands of people who buy their health insurance through Covered California will get an unpleasant surprise when they file taxes this year.

Stacy Scoggins gets plenty of mail from Covered California, but the one tax form the agency was required to send her by February 2nd still hasn’t arrived.

“After being on hold for 59 minutes, told me that the 1095-A was never generated,” Scoggins told KPIX 5 ConsumerWatch.

She’s talking about the 1095-A form, a document required for enrollees to file their tax returns. It’s a problem, for the recent widow who desperately needs to file now.

And she’s far from the only Covered California enrollee with 1095 problems. About 100,000 or 12 percent of the forms generated by Covered California have inaccuracies.

They got the lion's share of HHS money just after Kathleen "DeathPanel" Sebelious got grilled over shame website performance...$952,900,000 for the website.

Montana got $70,000 for comparison.

It seems that Anthem Blue Cross may be misrepresenting the true numbers of Covered CA enrollees to the government and, therefore, getting reimbursed more than it should.

Three times now I have been advised my insurance plan was NOT adequate because I have a CCA plan. Stanford Hospital refused to give me an appointment for a Specialist I was referred there to see. Two local specialists also advised they could not accept my CCA plan.

I don't have a CCA plan.

I have an "off" CCA plan. A Prudent Buyer, Standard plan. A plan that Stanford would take. I know this as an absolute because my office wrote our group health plan. We write Anthem insurance as we are licensed to do so and have for decades.

I discovered in my research that Anthem shows my I.D. # as a CCA plan and only my group # reflects my true plan. It is the member I.D. # used by medical industry for confirmation of coverage, remaining deductibles, Max out of pocket balances, etc. The group's I.D.# is rarely used for this.

If the government is receiving data from Anthem on all it's "off" CCA enrollees as though they were on CCA, well that means more problems for the already data breached, 2nd largest insurer in the nation.

So, if you are on a plan like mine, pay close attention go your EOBs! Anthem may be paying or NOT paying your medical bills properly and reporting you too as a CCA enrollee, which is obviously just a minor mistake, right???

FYI, the Department of Insurance doesn't regulate insurers or their rates as they do with most all other lines of insurance.

Inability to comply with the law is no excuse for not following the law.

$22,000/day fines, contempt of bureaucrat, civil forfeiture of all assets.
