ObamaCare Can’t Detect Fraud

Remember the recent TSA report where lots of “created” bad guys were all able to thwart TSA? And we are supposed to think that government has our backs, right?

Well here we go again, except this time, as it is most of the time, it’s about our money.

As it turns out, ObamaCare wasn’t built to detect fraud. Makes sense, given that the program IS A FRAUD!

As reported in St. Louis Today:

Phony applicants that investigators signed up last year under President Barack Obama’s health care law got automatically re-enrolled for 2015. Some were rewarded with even bigger taxpayer subsidies for their insurance premiums, a congressional probe has found.

The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) says 11 counterfeit characters that its investigators created last year were automatically re-enrolled by HealthCare.gov. In Obama’s terms, they got to keep the coverage they had.

Six of those later were flagged and sent termination notices. But GAO said it was able to get five of them reinstated, by calling HealthCare.gov’s consumer service center. The five even got their monthly subsidies bumped up a bit, although GAO did not ask for it. The case of the sixth fake enrollee was under review.

HealthCare.gov does not appear to be set up to detect fraud, GAO audits and investigations chief Seto Bagdoyan said in prepared testimony for a Senate Finance Committee hearing Thursday. A copy was provided to The Associated Press.

It’s incredulous that FRAUD DETECTION wasn’t built into this nonsensical mess, but then again, we are dealing with government. You certainly didn’t think the Fed would be looking out for your dollars.
We learned:

HealthCare.gov’s document-processing contractor “is not required to seek to detect fraud,” said Bagdoyan. “The contractor personnel involved in the document-verification process are not trained as fraud experts and do not perform antifraud duties.”

So who does perform anti-fraud duties?
