Remember when the Obamacare’s health exchanges were supposed to make shopping for health care easy? The reality is quite the opposite:
Applying for benefits under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul could be as daunting as doing your taxes. The government’s draft application runs 15 pages for a three-person family. An outline of the online version has 21 steps, some with additional questions. . .
That’s just the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help. . . Once you’re finished with the money part, actually picking a health plan will require additional steps, plus a basic understanding of insurance jargon. . .
Some are concerned that a lot of uninsured people will be overwhelmed and simply give up.
Of course, giving up isn’t actually allowed. With the individual mandate, giving up means paying a heavy fine.
