Just cause they’ve signed up for Obamacare doesn’t mean they’re covered.

Around one in five people who picked health insurance policies on the state and federal exchanges last year haven’t paid their first month’s premiums, according to insurers polled by CNNMoney. These folks will likely see their policy selection canceled and they’ll be left uninsured.

via Obamacare deadbeats: Some don’t pay their first premiums – Jan. 30, 2014.

One in five (that’s 20%) of those that successfully signed up for Obamacare have not paid their premiums.  That means their policies will likely be canceled.  It was probably too much of a shock to those people once they got the bill and found out it wasn’t free.

Does anyone know of someone that has actually used their Obamacare and received benefits from it?  I would like to hear of any experiences–successful or otherwise.

Meanwhile, the White House is using the NCAA March Madness to push Obamacare on the younger generation.
