Covered California Sends Deaf Callers To Hotline Offering ‘Hot Ladies’

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — On the deadline to sign up for health coverage through Covered California, some hearing-impaired residents were sent to a chat line offering ‘hot ladies’ instead of an insurance navigator.

With the deadline looming, an Auburn man scrambled to sign up for Covered California.

A page on the site where users can calculate the cost of coverage lists an incorrect phone number as 1-888-899-4500.
The number, which was correct on the Contact Us page, is similar, but just one digit off: 1-888-889-4500.

So what does the incorrect number go to? This is what greets callers instead of health insurance advice: “Welcome to America’s hottest talk line. Ladies, to talk to interesting and exciting guys free, press one now. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you. Press two to connect free now,” the recording says.

Well....what can one say??
Entertainment while on hold!!!! LOL

A screenshot captured by CBS13 shows the incorrect number as it appeared on the site
The mistake has since been fixed on the Covered California website, even tho at first they denied having the wrong number posted

That's one way to lure people to sign up for Obamacare!!!
"Talk dirty to me....oh yeah Baby"

Ah, gotta love all this hoopla brought forth by Obama, Pelosi, and Reid
Thanks a lot guys [/sarcasm]
