    Rocky Start For North Carolina Health Care Exchanges

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (CBS Charlotte) - North Carolina’s largest insurer is having its share of problems with the Obamacare website.

    Internal emails obtained by WNCN-TV show that Blue Cross Blue Shield show that only 1,000 people had filled out applications as of October 15th.

    In fact, only one person was able to successfully use Healthcare.gov to enroll in the new exchange.

    But even that single person has not paid, which means the enrollment is not complete.

    The emails suggest the “payment re-direct option” on government servers isn’t working.
    Blue Cross Blue Shield found the entire system is so filled with glitches that the company decided not to upload data because it was afraid false information might enter its computer system.
    And the emails reveal a scammer was using the insurer’s name to try to obtain personal information.

    Two things about this....Not only is this a disaster, and clearly people don't want it, but I sincerely hope that if any of our members have gone into the website, and given any personal information, I hope you have lifelock or something...This is a huge scam.

    Because you think a healthcare website is a scam, you hope people pay for a different scam?

    I'd prefer not to be scammed at all, but with Progressive liberals in charge, not likely.

    "And the emails reveal a scammer was using the insurer’s name to try to obtain personal information.

    A person was making phone calls claiming to be with the “National Health Care Registry,” and falsely claim it was taking over healthcare reform contracts from the Blue Cross.

    BCBS spokesman Lew Borman told WNCN-TV the company is working with the government to solve these problems.

    “We’re hopeful that the issues can be resolved quickly so the Exchange will work seamlessly for our customers,” he said."

    I prefer taking precautions that work. The life lock guy posted his own social security number as a way of advertising the service. Had his identity stolen. More than once.

    Yep. Total scam. That's why it gets advertised in the same slots as all the other "doomsday marketing" scammers. The US dollar is going to collapse next tuesday, buy gold from us! At grossly inflated prices. If civilization collapses, you'll want these survival seeds, because you know how to ****ing grow crops right? *smash* That's the sound of a huge black man breaking down your door right now. Don't you want our home security system so that one of our technicians will call your home seventeen minutes after the alarm goes off?

    Buy lifelock, pay us monthly to do absolutely nothing for you. We don't even monitor our own credit, what makes you think we'll watch yours?
