ObamaCare "Glitch"; a "glitch" in ObamaCare may leave thousands uninsured. Families may start finding themselves out priced from employer-sponsored health care plans. These plans, with premiums on the rise, may mean costs are passed along to workers at a higher rate than expected. These families were supposed to be able to get financial assistance but may find themselves paying a penalty instead.
ObamaCare was supposed to offer financial support to employees who couldn't afford moderately priced employer-based insurance. However, due to wording left out of the bill by congress, missed by the white house and a failure on the IRS to rectify the issue, these individuals and their families aren't eligible for assistance. Even worse thousands of employees and their families may find themselves not only without health insurance, but also being faced with the penalty for not having it. (those who choose not to purchase insurance must pay an income tax "penalty)
Employees were supposed to receive tax credits and up-front assistance if they couldn't afford work-based plans. However congress didn't include text in the law to support this and the IRS has yet to fix the issue on their end. The white house is blaming Congress, but pointing fingers isn't fixing the issue. In a bill of this size it's expected that there would be issues, but there is no excuse for making insurance less affordable for Americans.
Until the glitch is solved hundreds of thousands of men women and children could find themselves paying a penalty for being uninsured by 2014.
