Is Obamacare’s celebrity enrollee actually signed up?
(Jessica Rinaldi/Reuters) Yesterday, Chad Henderson became a verified Obamacare celebrity. The 21-year-old from Georgia was hounded by reporters after Enroll America identified him as someone who had successfully purchased insurance coverage on HealthCare.Gov (a relatively rare feat right now). Chad’s dad, Bill Henderson, says otherwise. He tells Peter Suderman that he believes Chad has not signed up for health coverage quite yet. Here’s one bit of their interview: Bill Henderson told me that both he and his son were interested in getting coverage, but that they had not enrolled in any plan yet, and to his knowledge, neither had his son.He also said that when they do enroll, getting the most coverage for the least money would be the goal, and that he expects that he and his son will get coverage under the same plan. Bill told me that Chad had been looking into plans online. He told me that theres different plans. And we havent decided which plans to enroll in yet. I’ve left a phone message with Chad asking him if he wants to comment on his dad’s comments. Chad never told me that his dad had signed up, but did say he enrolled in a plan around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.Either somebody is lying, or the Henderson family needs to work on its communication skills. Update: I spoke with Chad over the phone about this situation. He told me that he has indeed not purchased coverage but doesn’t believe he was lying.
