ObamaCare Mess Leaves Heart Attack Victim With $407,000 Medical Bill


ObamaCare horror stories — all of which Harry Reid dismisses as lies — are too numerous to document. Here is a representative example:

The busted ObamaCare websites cost a lot of people a lot of time. But for one Nevada man, problems with the state insurance exchange reportedly cost him $407,000.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Larry Basich, a 62-year-old Vegas resident, has been stuck with the massive medical bill despite signing up for an insurance plan via the state exchange last fall.

Basich, according to the article, selected a UnitedHealthcare plan in November, and even paid his first premium. But he never received confirmation that he was enrolled, despite being assured that he was by Nevada Health Link.

Amid the confusion, Basich suffered a heart attack at the end of December, and had to undergo a triple bypass. Now, according to the Review-Journal, no insurer will claim his bills — and he’s caught in a financially frightening battle…

Medical insurance is a complicated business. The free market could handle it. The bureaucratically micromanaged crony capitalist world of ObamaCare cannot handle it.

Sorry, Mr. Basich. But you are just one casualty among countless others. As a Founding Father of progressivism might say, one person losing their healthcare is a tragedy. Tens of millions losing it is just a statistic.
