Woman DIES who was denied insured health care that she paid for because of Obamacare enrollment problems

Story here.
She had a brain tumor and urgently needed treatment, which was to be covered by the insurance she signed up for on the Obamacare exchange, and paid for it--but, the web site, paperwork, communication, etc. was so messed up that she did not get the coverage and care she needed.

It was not malice on anyone's part (IBM was contracted to work the exchange, they didn't save money from the coverage not going through, they just tragically didn't have an effectively working health insurance exchange).

People who signed up for coverage across the US, and who have been paying for it, may not find out that there is a problem with their coverage until they need treatment, and the insurance they thought they had won't pay for it.:(

The Affordable Healthcare Act had a lot of problems didn't it. From this side of the pond it seemed as if Americans despise their opponents so much that there were paid politicians more interested in scoring political points than in treating patients effectively. I guess this woman, and any others, were failed by those who couldn't manage to get round a table and make something work. I would guess that those who opposed change had at the very least campaign contributions from the medical sector. Bring back Mr Deeds.

The blame in this case is on Xerox, not the ACA, derp.
