Applied on the exchange when they told me to get started.
And somehow the system turned upside down and farted.
They sent letter after letter, now what ya s'posed to do?
There ain't no thing like Obamacare blues.
All told, they sent around three dozen pages of dead trees out, warning of dire consequences, and I finally ended up calling them over there at healthcare.gov. I finally got through to somebody and said something like, "look, here's the deal". After a bit of back and forth, he agreed that there was a problem, but promised he could fix it. Never heard another thing. So I sent in the January premium payment last month, and never heard anything from the HMO - who usually send out a half-dozen ID cards. So I called them today to see if we were actually covered, and after rocking around their phone systems and being transferred from one unit to another, was finally told that yes, we're covered and yes, they received payment. Golly, what fun!
I can hardly wait to apply for Medicare.
