Back in November of last year, I applied for health insurance through healthcare.gov for my wife and me. They sent several dead trees telling me that I had not provided sufficient documentation of our income, and told me to send a copy of our 2015 income tax return. Which I did - twice, once electronically and once by hard copy.
Today, I received yet another dead tree from them, stating that - wait for it:
We requested documentation to prove your household annual income, and sufficient documentation wasn't provided.
Apparently, copies of our income tax return is something that's just too complicated for the dummies there to understand. But then, they're located in London, Kentucky, so it's understandable, I guess. Tax returns are just sooo hard to figure out, especially when there's a total joint income noted in black and white on the return itself.
I know of a guy in Texas who went through this same sort of thing, and the morons in Kentucky signed him up with the same health insurance provider six times. He has six health provider cards!
It's really going to throw those folks for a loop when I go onto healthcare.gov and report a change in life - only my wife will be stuck with Obamacare! They won't know what to do, so they'll doubtless churn out more dead trees demanding more information. I'll just ignore those; they've demonstrated their sheer incompetence already.
