    To Sign Up For Obamacare, Start Filling Out The Forms Now (And Hire A Good Accountant)

    Want to apply for Obamacare this fall? Start the paperwork now.

    What’s in the 60-page document? Most families of four will have to answer about 1,000 discrete queries by the time they’re done.

    In order to make sure that consumers are eligible for government subsidies to buy coverage, the feds need to make sure that you meet certain income tests, and don’t have access to alternative health coverage through your workplace (or your spouses). So you’re going to need to answer a lot of questions about your income and employment status. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll need to know:

    A lot of the information is personal: Is anyone in your house pregnant? Was anyone ever in foster care? Does anyone have a disability or need help with his or her activities of daily living. The feds want to know whether you might be eligible for stated-based Medicaid programs rather than the Obamacare exchanges.

    A battery of questions deals with estimating your income and that of your spouse. How many hours do you work each week? How much money do you get from self-employment or a one-time windfall from capital gains or inheritance? How much do you get from “farming or fishing income?” Certain things, including child support, veteran’s benefits, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can be excluded.

    You’ll need a lot of information about your employer and any health plan they might offer. What is their EIN number? What is the name, number, and e-mail address for the person who handles health coverage at your place of work? You’ll also need the “name of the lowest cost self-only health plan” offered at your spouses workplace. But be careful here. “Only include plans that meet the minimum value standard set by the Affordable Care Act” (whatever that means).

    Finished yet? Not even close. You’re only on page 37. ... :eeek:

    (When finished) sign on the dotted line. Penalty of perjury applies. ... :imout:

    Once you’re done with the application, at least three major federal agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), will scrutinize your answers. ... :injured:

    When folks turn their attention to the paperwork, many may wish they’d remained in the dark. ... :em3000:

    This may ease the pain some and help rescue you from the dark :em3000::




    Can you get Obamacare? This insanely complicated chart will tell you.


    It can take as many as six questions just to determine an individual’s ability to buy insurance. An eight-question chain sorts out eligibility to eschew employer coverage and buy an individual plan with a tax credit instead.

    In a way, this is a natural extension of the law’s structure. The Affordable Care Act grows two different insurance programs, Medicaid and the individual market. Information on income levels is needed to figure out who qualifies for which one.

    The Obama administration isn’t collecting 21 pages of information for its own entertainment. It’s collecting 21 pages of information to figure out where people land on this flowchart:

    After Reading the above and becoming familiar with the flow chart (click to review), I can see the necessity for integrate details; remember, its our tax dollars at work, after all ... :wink:

    Peace In,
