Vegas Man Trapped in $407,000 Obamacare Nightmare

“Basich, 62, bought a plan through the state’s Nevada Health Link insurance exchange in the fall. He’s been paying monthly premiums since November.”

“Yet the Las Vegan is stranded in a no-man’s-land where no carrier claims him, and his tab is mounting: Basich owes $407,000 for care received in January and February, when his policy was supposed to be in effect. Instead, he’s covered only for March and beyond.”

“Basich, who blames his back-and-forth with the exchange in December at least in part for stress that caused his heart attack.”

[...] “Both [NV Gov.] Sandoval’s and [Sen. Harry] Reid’s offices have told him they want to help, Basich said, but there’s been no resolution so far.”

[...] ” “All I wanted to do when I moved here was buy a house, get a dog and go to some spring training games for the Dodgers,” said Basich, who moved to Las Vegas from Hawaii in 2012.”

“Meanwhile, the exchange sent Basich premium invoices for January and February. He paid them both.”
