Obama administration accused of "misleading" Congress about not keeping track of how many Obamacare customers have paid their first-month premiumsTopics: Political News and commentaries
Oh please, tell me it isn't so (as I put on my 'surprised' face). Surely, this can't be true, right?.
The Obama administration would never lie ... or have they!:
"New evidence obtained by the Committee strongly suggests that the Administration knows who has enrolled and paid their first month's premium. In fact, there is specific information about who has paid their premium that Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is collecting and using to make payments to insurers. On January 16, 2014, CMS posted a series of FAQs on the www.regtap.info portal. The portal is used by insurers to receive basic information about how to receive payments, what information is required of them and in what format, etc. ... according to the Ways and Means Committee.More here ...
"The Committee has obtained FAQ 671, which states,... '[S]ubmitters will include the full enrollment and payment profile for January (i.e. all active enrollments for January effectuated through January 15th) ... The January restatement template should contain all enrollments effective during the month of January. It will capture what was already submitted to CMS in December (effectuated enrollments through 12/15) but will also capture enrollments effectuated after 12/15) ... submitters will include the full enrollment and payment profile for February (i.e. all active enrollments for February effectuated through January 15th). It will include enrollments that were previously effectuated for January and that are still in place in February,'" according to the Committee.
Camp and Brady sent a letter to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, obtained by The Daily Caller, laying out their accusation and demanding answers on how many people have paid their premiums.
An industry source told Politico that the Obama administration has "a lot more information than they're letting on," According to the source, "they have real hard data about the percent that have paid ... If they have not processed those yet and compiled the data, that is a choice they are making. But they have that data now.."
This, the most transparent and honest administration ... 'evah' (chuckle, chuckle)!
