â€‹The Obama administration has a knack for changing things. First, your healthcare. And now the definition of what an enrollee is.
As reported by the Washington Post:
“Health insurance plans only count subscribers as enrolled in a health plan once they've submited a payment. That is when the carrier sends out a member card and begins paying doctor bills.
When the Obama administration releases health law enrollment figures later this week, though, it will use a more expansive definition. It will count people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.
"In the data that will be released this week, 'enrollment' will measure people who have filled out an application and selected a qualified health plan in the marketplace," said an administration official, who requested anonymity to frankly describe the methodology.”
The Administration is so desperate to bloat the numbers they are resorting to "Amazon Wish List" accounting. Anything to make this sad failure look good.
