Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina’s Obamacare Enrollee Count: 1

https://youtube.com/watch?v=eSWccrsAnpw

Almost a month after the Obamacare exchanges opened, North Carolina’s exchange, which is federally run, hasn’t seen many enrollments. In fact, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina reportedly has only one enrollee as of last FridayAnd that person hasn’t even completed the entire process: He hasn’t paid yet and therefore isn’t really in the system. 

But low enrollment isn’t the only problem: The insurer has had ”to refrain from uploading data” from the government into its own system to keep the federal government’s potentially incorrect information from filtering in. On top of that, internal e-mails obtained by WNCN reveal that a telephone fraudster is attempting to use Blue Cross’s name to obtain personal information; the caller is identifying himself as part of the non-existent “National Health Care Registry,” and claims that his organization is taking over health-care-reform contracts from the insurer.

Max Boot’s Dishonesty

Before yesterday, my primary criticism of the Washington Post’s Max Boot was political in nature. As I wrote in a recent book review, I found it regrettable that Boot’s opposition to the president had not prevented him from “succumbing reactively to Trump’s cult of personality, or from making Trump the ...
