    Default Undercover Investigators Got Obamacare Coverage Using Fake Identities

    Prime example of why Government should NOT be doing what the Private Sector can do so much better!

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...p_ref=politics

    If we really wanted to get Healthcare cost under control and more affordable, we would take it out of the hands of bureaucrats !!!

    Let the Healthcare Insurance Companies compete in all 50 states and get the government out of the way.

    I'm not sure the government was out of the way during the HMO PPO days.

    Personally, I think we are better off with the pre PPO HMO System.

    The article did say that the money is paid directly to insurance companies so defrauders could not profit from the fraud.

    There is always a way to cheat. At least this one does not benefit the cheater.

    This and stop paying for anything other than direct care with those policies; no breast pumps, shoes, walkers, crutches, ect. Mandated coverage just didn't occur with the Unaffordable Care Act, the mandates started the whole "Healthcare is a Human Right" BULLL $HIT the Gimmedats chant. Health Ins Companies have feathered their beds with each and every mandate including the UCA.

    We were. PPO/HMO, precertification, mandatory second opinions drug cards, etc. only added to the cost of providing insurance. They did nothing to reduce the cost of health care but instead increased the cost of insurance.

    In the past 50 years, have there been any significant changes to other types of insurance? Auto and homeowners have increase the minimum deductibles but that's about it.

    Screw it! Don't get me started...
