Obama LLC has extended the sing-up deadline for people with pre existing conditions.

The deadline was Jan 31st, now it's March 15th.

Apparently people who have been on the original PCIP program since 2010 or in state high risk pools are not signing up for a new regular policy so fast.

The temporary PCIP was initiated to get people with insurance problems enrolled in available insurance state by state.

The whole pre existing condition thing was/is a problem and PCIP probably has helped to an extent.

But those policies were not free (in fact they are expensive).

The Administration says 135,000 are in the PCIP program.

That's a little low for as many with pre existing conditions were supposed to be uninsured when the government was selling the Obama.Care legislation.

Something's not quite adding up here.

WH delays another ObamaCare deadline


The Obama administration announced Tuesday that it was again extending the ObamaCare enrollment deadline for people with pre-existing conditions.

The administration said it would extend the Pre-Existing Conditions Insurance Plan (PCIP), slated to end Jan. 31, until March 15.

“As part of our continuing effort to help smooth consumers’ transition into Marketplace coverage, we are allowing those covered by PCIP additional time to shop for new coverage while they receive the ongoing care and treatment they need,” Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters said in a statement.


The administration says 135,000 have used the program at some point.

 


for reference;


PCIP - Enrollment Suspension

On February 16, 2013, the federally-run Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) suspended acceptance of new enrollment applications until further notice. The suspension also became effective in the state-based PCIPs on March 2. This will help ensure that funds are available through 2013 to continuously cover people currently enrolled in PCIP. PCIP will continue providing coverage to more than 100,000 people currently enrolled nationwide.

And to add; many states already had insurance pools for many years before Obama.Care.

This is the first administration I have ever heard of that can just change laws to suit whichever way the wind blows.. Guess what Mr. Obama, I'm extending my own sign up deadline till the year 4010AD. Seems like when people do sign up, it just brings them devastating results. I can't believe there are people dumb enough to even cooperate with this joke.

Hold the phone!

Wait!

They said there were MILLIONS OF PEOPLE without health insurance!

They said there were MILLIONS OF PEOPLE with preexisting conditions!


And they have to 'extend' it longer?

No one was signing up before what the EFF makes him think by extending it people will sign up ?

And hardly anyone has 'signed' up for that super duper wonderful corporate product call health insurance?

Egads!

Guess that so called crisis was manufactured like every other so called political issue.

129 million have prexisting conditions ?

Definately some fuzzy math there.

Seems to me if that was TRUE.

That 'desperate' 129 million people would have signed up already.

Another Obama lie busted.

The study found that one-fifth to one-half of non-elderly people in the United States have ailments that trigger rejection or higher prices in the individual insurance market. They range from cancer to chronic illnesses such as heart disease, asthma and high blood pressure


What an EFFING LIE!

I know for a fact that heart disease qualifies for disability, as well as most other illness's that automatically gets covered under medicare.

REGARDLESS of age.

Could it be....

Could it be.......

That the whole Obama.Care thing was over hyped and sensationalized?

They could have easily fixed the small problems?

It was a sales pitch.

There was no need at all to overhaul 1/6 of the entire economy !!!

I think we've been had.

This is why Obamacare cannot "fail". They won't let it. They'll change the rules as often as they need to. And we already know there are no consequences for them when they lie.
