Surprise: Obamacare Not Able To Handle Life Changes

Color me shocked!

(WRAL) You were patient with the government’s kooky website, and now you have your health insurance card. That’s good, since your family is expecting a new baby.

But you may have jump through more hoops to get the child formally added to your policy. The Obama administration confirms there is no quick and easy way for consumers to update their coverage under the new health law for the birth of a baby and other common life changes.

With regular private insurance, parents just notify the health plan. Insurers still must cover new babies, officials say, but parents will also have to contact the government at some point later.

For now, the website can’t handle new baby updates, along with a list of other life changes including marriage and divorce, a death in the family, a new job or a change in income, even moving to a different community.

After spending lots and lots of time trying to get the high deductible insurance, people will have to spend lots and lots of time getting that super responsive federal government to understand and recognize life changes.

Oh, and there are lots more snags, as The Lonely Conservative points out.
