Jay Carney: If you purchased an Obamacare plan, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re actually covered

Yet another demonstration of the kind of “private sector velocity and effectiveness” we’ve come to expect:

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House is “very mindful of making sure that consumers who want coverage starting in January are able to get it.” But there’s no guarantee.

In fact, Carney said the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is “reaching out directly to consumers” who have chosen a health insurance plan, reminding them to pay their first premium — and asking them to make sure they are really covered:

“So there’s a joint effort to reach out to those who have enrolled to make sure that every step is being — that they know they need to take all the necessary steps to ensure that that coverage kicks in,” Carney said on Monday.

How much confidence would you have in your private insurer if the company called and said “you bought a policy from us but but please check and make sure we’re actually covering you”?

At some point Carney will be reminding people that the fine print in the “bronze” plan requires policy holders to perform their own surgeries.

At the same press conference, Carney cautioned a reporter not to confuse “error” messages with “queuing” messages.

A baseball scoreboard designed by Carney might look like this:
