But, we've also found at least one person who has been placed in MinnCare, by MNsure, who probably doesn't really belong on the taxpayer-financed MinnCare plan.

Steve Schweda has hundreds of thousands of dollars safely put away in retirement and savings accounts and he tells 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS "someone with hundreds of thousands of dollars in his retirement plan, you probably wouldn't want to put on welfare. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense."

Yet, Schweda says MNsure officials put him on MinnCare - paid mostly by taxpayers. He says he never intended to sign up for MinnCare, but that's where MNsure put him, "all they have is an income test. They have no asset test. So, it doesn't matter how big of a house you have, it doesn't matter how much money you have saved up, or invested in any form, it is just what your income is," Schweda says.

Schweda says he thinks there are probably many others out their just like him whose health insurance is paid by taxpayers when they could easily afford private health insurance, "anybody who thought about it would not set it up this way. No matter whose money it is, if you just thought about it for a minute, you would say 'this makes no sense.'"

Minor implementation detail..

MNsure is still attempting to insure people:

MNsure offers retroactive coverage for some:

Some Minnesotans eligible for private insurance plans through the MNsure health care exchange may qualify for retroactive coverage, credits or cost-sharing reductions.

Two categories of people are eligible. The first is consumers who have not had continuous coverage since Jan. 1 and unsuccessfully attempted to enroll. MNsure says they may qualify for retroactive coverage as far back as Jan. 1 depending on the date they first attempted to sign up. They must pay the back premiums.

The other category is people who enrolled in qualifying individual market private health plans directly from an insurer, but are eligible for tax credits or cost-sharing reductions because of their incomes.

The poster child for Obamacare?

Flushing another 5 million with Deloitte Consulting, Minnesota got the news that despite Governor Daytonís boast that MNsure has been tremendously successful, it is evident that his $160 million Obamacare website is still broken.

Fourty one (41) important items either aren't working properly or are not even set up yet. Plans to have manual enrollment (that is on paper folks) contingency plans in place for the November start of enrillment are being worked on.
