Obamacare “Navigators” Told To “Smile” When They Sign People Up For Obama’s Train Wreck Health Care Plan… (external - login to view)


Obamacare Navigators are being told to smile as they sell President Obama’s failed healthcare law to the public. That’s according to a 217 page manual, the Health Insurance Marketplace Navigator Standard Operating Procedures Manual (external - login to view), released by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services on Monday. Will their pitch sound something like this?
We’re going to strangle you with regulations, smother you in bureaucracy, make it next to impossible for you to find full-time work, and intrude in the some of the most intimate decisions you’ll make in your life… But we’re smiling, so you should be happy about all of this!
Perhaps not. But sadly, none of this is a joke. The administration states (external - login to view):
Section 2.2.1 Smile –Maintain a Positive Demeanor
This is the most simple and most powerful tip for consumer assistance (and most interpersonal interactions). Smile. Smiles are contagious; usually when you smile at somebody they will smile back at you. Do not pretend to smile, or produce a false smile; these are easy to spot and send the wrong messages. Relax, gain eye-contact, and smile naturally. This will help consumers to feel at ease and welcomed. You will come across as friendly and approachable, setting the scene for positive interaction.
If you are talking to somebody on the telephone, you can still smile; your voice sounds different when you smile and are happy. Consumers are more likely to want to talk to a cheerful person with an enthusiastic personality and by smiling while you talk you can help to project this.

The real problem with Obamacare is that it didn't go far enough and fast enough.
Obama should have usurped the power of the managed privates right from the
beginning.

Becoming an Obamacare Navigator is a wonderful way of committing Identity Theft because there are no restrictions on who can be a Navigator. No background checks, no bonding requirements, no licensing.

Navigators can steal identities with impunity.

Too bad our insurance coverage plans won't be as comprehensive as that you guys have in Canada. One the wannabes will never relinquish in favor of the crap we have.

I'm not sure about that but I certainly would have an issue with the IRS being in charge of it! Incredible and scarey!!

JMHO

On second thought, you're right but my contention that the IRS shouldn't be involved still stands lol Also, his effort to insure the uninsured doesn't work - there'll still be millions who won't be covered. What a waste of time (and paper)!

It takes a tard to relinquish subsidized health care. Fortune 500 employees won't do so and neither will the wannabes.

We can afford to pay for Israel's health care coverage every year. But we sure as hell cannot afford another 45,000 dead per year in a Republican created holocaust that has killed over a million people in the past 20+ years.

I'm guessing that via your full-press diversion on the question that the real answer is 'No'

The people who weren't buying insurance but needed healthcare were costing tax payers money, money that the US can't afford. The prices are going down in Democrat states, states that have no partisan reason to see a Democratic President's signature legislation fail. If you want something to be a failure, it's fairly easy to make that happen...

People that need healthcare are still being forced to buy it and in the absence of having that healthcare, they will still get treatment but might also face a fine on top of it all for not having a plan in place.

A number of companies (industries) are also changing the way that they do business to take advantage of loopholes in the Obamacare system... Downsizing to get their staff population of full timers below 100 or moving people into part-time positions. The onus is now on the individual rather than the company to secure their insurance.

I think that you might be under the impression that the present system in the USA is closer to the Canadian experience... That is not the case

America needs to create comprehensive healthcare, and then legalize twelve million illegal aliens who will overwhelm the health care system. Smart move if one is a leftist.

And where did you get that info from?

It appears the States have set the rules regarding background checks etcetera so if there is a failure, they will be the ones who screwed up..........




Grants for Obamacare 'navigators' made in hostile territory



The administration has announced grants totaling $67 million to 105 groups, organizations that will be hiring "navigators" for
Obamacare in the 34 states in which the federal government is setting up health insurance exchanges.

And, of course, there's more. In at least 19 of these Republican states, where the grants are going, lawmakers have seen another opportunity for sabotage. They don't think people should have help getting affordable health insurance and they also apparently think the would-be navigators shouldn't have jobs. They've enacted restrictions (external - login to view) and extra requirements for navigator training and licensing and to make the job as difficult as possible by restricting what the navigators can tell the people they're helping.


What's the status of navigator requirements in states with federally facilitated exchanges?

To date, at least 19 states with federally facilitated exchanges have enacted, or are currently considering, legislation that imposes state-specific requirements on navigators. Of these, 14—Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin—have already passed such legislation. An additional five states—Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania—are currently considering pending legislation or have sent such legislation to the governor to be signed.


Most of the bills require a navigator to obtain state licensure or approval before operating in the state. Many also establish training requirements, require criminal background checks, and authorize disciplinary measures against navigators. Some bills also subject navigators to existing insurance law (such as privacy and unfair trade practices standards) or require navigators to secure financial protection against wrongdoing.

Reformers have tried for years to create universal health care coverage before Bush opened the borders to illegals. Had reform been created beforehand and if the borders had been sealed this would never have happened.

Can you prove Bush OPENED the borders to illegals?

I want all the American members of CC to PM me with their real names, addresses, phone numbers and social security numbers. But the American members won't do so because they are afraid I'll steal their identities.

However, it is less likely that I will steal their identities than it is that a Navigator will do so. Nevertheless, the American members will give their vital information to unscreened and unbounded Navigators. Roll the dice.

We've discussed this only a couple of dozen times before so I suggest you click on search for proof.
