    If A Person Does Not Get An Insurance Card
    or account number wouldn't that person know that they don't have insurance??  Is there people who paid and got an insurance card and would still show up not having insurance?  It doesn't make sense to me.
    It is senseless to think that you can go into a doctor's office and say you're insured without having a card or packet or some form of confirmation from the insurance company that you believe you are insured with.

    Even so, the government has been calling people to tell them to call the insurers they signed up with to confirm that they are insured.

    For those who thought they enrolled in a plan through the federal exchange since October, the Obama administration now advises that individuals contact their insurance company to verify coverage and if none exists, to start all over again.

    “Consumers should absolutely call their selected plan, confirm that they have paid their first month’s premium and that coverage would be available to them, beginning January 1st,” said Julie Bataille, communications director for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS.

    “We will also make a concerted effort to reach consumers who selected a plan over the course of these past several weeks, so that they know what their next steps would be, which include paying their first premium and confirming enrollment with their plan,” she said.

    "I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights." (From "You Said a Mouthful" by Bishop Desmond Tutu - South African bishop & activist, b.1931)
