I visited this morning to do a search and found the administration actually had a countdown clock on their home page. It looks like they are giving everyone 16 more days to sign up…

Obamacare – No dentists within 100 miles

By Steve McGough | March 28, 2014 |

This is just the tip of the iceberg of Obamacare problems folks, and it’s going to get worse. So far, physicians and other health care providers can not be required to participate in any specific health care insurance plan. They have the option to say “no thank you” when it comes to any plan that…

Fewer than 10% of eligible 18- to 34-year-olds signed up for Obamacare

By Steve McGough | March 13, 2014 |

The plan was – and still is – they need huge support from the young crowd who do not have employer-sponsored health insurance to buy into the state or federal exchanges. The goal for the first year was to have 2.8 million enrolled (out of 11.4 million), but total signups are only at 1.1 million…

Obama administration not tracking the number of health care uninsured?

By Steve McGough | March 7, 2014 |

Mary Katherine Ham over at Hot Air notes the Obama administration’s health care team does not seem to be tracking the number of people without health insurance, or the number of previously uninsured who now have coverage. You would think the Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) would consider that to be an important…

Obamacare supporters attack people who lost health care plans they liked

Now, but Obama administration is pressuring…

“Simple mistakes” plagued Connecticut health exchange during first month

By Steve McGough | December 12, 2013 |

We were led to believe Access Health CT was a shining example of what was going right with the health care insurance initiative, but it turns out 2,400 enrollees were provided incorrect information about the plan they selected during the month of October. Some signed up for no-deductible plans that ended up having a $3,000…

By Steve McGough | December 9, 2013 |

From the New York Times no less! When you offer low premiums, generally there is a higher deductible involved. This is nothing new, but the grand marketing campaign that is the Obama administration hid – on purpose – the deductibles associated with insurance policies on the federal exchange … until two weeks before the deadline.
