WNCN: News, Weather for Raleigh. Durham, Fayetteville

The public’s problems in trying to deal with the troubled Health Insurance Marketplace website aren’t the only problems plaguing the system. WNCN Investigates learned the state’s largest insurer has experienced a number of problems with the system

Blue Cross Blue Shield has more than 3.7 million customers in our state, but internal emails obtained by WNCN show that as of last Friday, only one person had enrolled for health insurance through the Exchange and that person hasn’t paid.

Without payment, enrollment means nothing because the customer is still not officially in the system.

Yep…. the question is how many people will pony up for their new policies come January 1st…. that’s the number I’m waiting to see.

He hasn’t paid because he was told it would be free.

Ha! According to the NC libtards I deal with on a daily basis, Obamacare is going splendidly.

Excellent news indeed…

He probably hit the ‘Cancel’ button, but it signed him up.

The scary part is that the press will find him if they want, and know everything about his personal insurance choices.

That’s Ocare.

I’m going to refuse to sign up for this stupid, stupid, stupid mess. I understand if you go to a federal prison, you get free health insurance, free doctors, three square meals a day, a TV in your private room, a free phone plus a free Obama cell phone. The only down side is I have to turn in my food stamps because the food is free.

And the 160,000 N. Carolinians who have had their insurance plan canceled should take comfort in knowing that if your actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking…or something.

I don’t think I’ve paid anything for my 2014 coverage, either. Isn’t that pretty normal? You start paying for it when the coverage starts, right?
